Student Centre

The SM调教圈 aims to make life as simple as possible for students and those who may wish to study here in the future, so the Student Centre acts as the main point of contact for many of the services and activities that students may need during their time at the University.

If you have a question, the Student Centre is the one place to start looking for an answer. Our knowledgeable team of Student Life Advisers provide a welcoming, friendly and efficient service, and will be able to respond ‘on-the-spot’ to the majority of enquiries.

We can help students access many of the specialist services on offer, including booking one-to-one appointments with support staff. In addition, we offer information and advice for anyone who may be considering Higher Education and can provide support throughout the application process.

You can contact the Student Centre team in person by visiting us on the ground floor of the Waterfront Building at the Ipswich Campus. Everyone is welcome in the Student Centre and you do not need to make an appointment, simply drop-in. Please be advised that there is a private discussion area in the corner of the Student Centre which can be used if you wish to discuss a sensitive issue with a member of staff away from the main desk area.
