Students can register for a C-Card and use it to collect free condoms and lube at the Advice Service Reception Desk. Students can also use their C-Card to collect free condoms and lube from the Reception Desk even if they registered for it elsewhere – likewise, they can use their C-Card at other venues even if they registered for it at the Reception Desk.

A clinic where the organization Victim First comes into the Students’ Union to provide free emotional and practical support to victims and witnesses of crime, regardless of when it happened and whether it has been reported. Victim First can provide support for all types of crime, including burglary, theft, sexual and domestic abuse, fraud and more. Practical support available includes the provision of personal alarms or window/door alarms.  

If you want to attend this clinic, email us to book an appointment.

To book an appointment, email with the following information: your availability; your name; and your university email address. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can also provide us with the crime type your appointment is related to, but this is completely optional. Our main priority is ensuring you are supported, so it is completely fine if you don't want to include this information within your email.
