Contact information for Undergraduates

Currently, the Undergraduate Office (UGO) and the Student Support Office (SSO) are not available for in-person, drop-in appointments. We will let you know when this changes! For now, we ask all our students not to visit Old College and the ground floor UGO/SSO offices with questions. Instead, please follow the instructions below so that we can respond to your queries in the quickest and safest way.

Contact the UGO

The UGO can help with course enrollment, assessments, timetables, teaching etc.

Is your question quick and easy?

Please contact the UGO through the monitored Discussion Board on the Learn UG Community site. The discussion board is organised into different threads to help you direct your enquiry. Each thread has attached FAQs that might answer your question immediately! The discussion board is monitored throughout the day, and you can usually expect a response within 24 hours (although this could increase during our busy periods).
