Student Support & Engagement Team

We’re still here for you and you can contact us on 01202 969696 and sset@bournemouth.ac.uk, Monday to Friday, between 9am – 5pm. The latest information from BU can be found in our Coronavirus FAQs.


As a new student you’ll know just how much of a big deal coming to university is, especially if this is the first time you've moved away from home. It's such an exciting time in your life, and our Student Support & Engagement Team are here to help you make the most of your time here.

We understand the pressures that moving to a new place and meeting new people can bring - as well as how tricky it can be learning how to balance your social life and workload, not to mention managing your own finances and study - we also know that it’s not unusual for new students to have trouble coping with it all.

There's a wide variety of support available and we can advise you on the best way forward to resolve the difficulties that you’re having.

So, whether you just want a quick chat about something that’s been getting you down, or you’re struggling with a bigger issue, contact the team and we'll do our best to help you out. And don’t worry, it’s all completely confidential.

Contact the team via email: sset@bournemouth.ac.uk - this mailbox is monitored daily.
