At university you may face non-academic issues where you need some expert help or guidance. There are lots of ways we can help you in your day-to-day life at University. Student Support Services provide a range of high-quality services to assist you during the course of your studies, help prepare you for life after graduation. We aim to enhance the student experience and help you to get the most out of your time at University.
Complementing Student Support Services, the Students’ Union also has the important task of addressing any welfare problems you might face. Stirling Students' Union offers its own welfare and information service, helping you solve problems and pursue them with the appropriate authorities if needs be.
Students living away from home should register with a doctor in the immediate area. There is a General Medical Practice located in the Medical Centre on-campus, as well as a Dental Centre.
Our campus has been described by police as one of the safest in Britain. If you need any advice about safety you can speak to our community policeman, PC Gordon Currie, and he will advise you.
Some provision is available within the University for pre-school age children. Students with children may also be interested to know that adjacent to the University is the Bright Starts Nursery, which caters for children from three months to five years of age.
