Your Support

UWLSU runs an independent, confidential and free advice service. We are here to support you through your time at UWL with any issues you may have.

If you’re struggling to make a deadline, need some advocacy support to attend a meeting or have been called to an academic offence meeting with no idea how to prepare please do not hesitate to contact us. Our job is to ensure you have the information and support you need.

You can contact the Advice Team by either emailing or calling 02082312276 with your query, or you can come in to our SMR Campus and head to the UWLSU desk for further information. Once you have been allocated an advisor, they will aim to contact you within 2 working days via your preferred method of contact.

International Students

Over 2,000 international students call UWL their home away from home. Here at UWLSU, we’re so happy to have you and we do everything we can to make sure you’re welcomed in with open arms! We run a dedicated international induction, with several exclusive international student events throughout the academic year.

Want to connect with people who understand what it feels like to be studying so far from home? Come and join our International Society! We’re dedicated to supporting you to have the best time possible at your new home, so get in touch and get involved.

Student Parents and Carers

It’s been particularly tough for our students with caring responsibilities since the start of lockdown. The juggling act of being a student parent/carer has become one of being a student/parent/teacher/entertainer/coach/superhero. It’s enough to leave anyone exhausted!

Our team at the SU understand the energy it takes to fill so many roles at once. We also understand that your needs will change from one day to the next. That’s why we’re committed to providing the support you need, when you need it. Let us know what you need via our course reps, advice service, or just by popping by our front desk. We’re listening and ready to give you the support you deserve!

Access to Computers & Internet

We understand online access is vital for every student. Each UWL campus has several banks of public computers available for student use. Every campus has computers available in the library.

Our Ealing and Brentford campuses also have computer banks located around campus, and dedicated computer labs with specialist software. Every computer can be accessed using your student login credentials.

Sexual Violence Awareness & Prevention

UWLSU strongly believe that students have a right to study and live free from harassment, objectification, and sexual violence. We have a strong zero tolerance policy.

We continuously work to better our support, prevention and understanding of this issue with the backing of your President, Maisie. Awareness is key, so we implement mandatory consent training for all student staff and committee members. We have also updated and reformed our reporting policy to give our students the best support possible.

If you have any concerns, please contact UWLSU Advice, or if you have any suggestions feel free to contact

Student Wellbeing

UWLSU strive to look after students’ mental health and wellbeing.

You deserve support in all areas of life, so we make sure we have the ability to do that. A number of our staff are trained with the knowledge to help best you. We have introduced a few initiatives including, period positivity, wellbeing retreats, quiet corners at events, sexual health awareness events throughout the year and updated incident reporting processes.

If you feel that a particular need isn’t being met or have any ideas on how we can best support you, please contact

Black Lives Matter

We are really proud to support this movement which has given a voice to so many needing to be heard. Here at UWLSU, we work tirelessly to make sure that students from all walks of life are represented in all areas of academic life and work in close partnership with the university to make change a reality.

We are committed to supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, along with every student affected by systemic oppression. We understand that the journey to equality is a marathon, not a sprint. So, we will continue to listen, learn, and do everything we can to support our BIPOC students.
