Student support

Whether this is the first time you have been to university, you’re continuing your studies or moving to the UK for the first time, this experience is likely to be entirely different to anything you’ve done before.

We want you to be happy and healthy throughout your BU experience, which is why teams like our Students’ Union (SUBU), ResLifeBU, SportBU and student services work together to organise a range of social, sporting, relaxing and party events during your first few weeks… and beyond!

You’ll find an incredible range of support services at BU and you can even contact them before you arrive.
