Advice Service

The Students’ Union Advice team offers free and confidential advice for students at the University of Greenwich.

The team is independent from the University, as is the Union, meaning we can give you an impartial view and support on any issues you face.

Everyone faces obstacles or barriers; if you encounter any during your time at University, talking to our Advice team is the first step to get through them, tackle a range of academic and non-academic issues, and continue at University successfully.
