Support for students

  • Need somebody to talk to? Find out the support options available at UWE Bristol.
  • UWE Bristol's Anti-Sexual Violence Service provides a non-judgemental, inclusive and confidential space for you to seek support if you have experienced sexual trauma of any kind, even if you don’t want to report something. We can give you unbiased information about reporting processes with the police and University so you can make the best decision for you.  It’s an appointment-based service, offering face-to-face, telephone or video call appointments from every campus. Please note that this is not a crisis service. 
  • The Advice Centre at the Students’ Union at UWE is a free, confidential, impartial service where an advisor can talk through your options, the procedure, how to report an incident, and support you through the process. This can include checking draft reports and attending any meetings you have with the University.
