How can we help?

Here at the Advice Service, we offer confidential, impartial and non-judgemental support. We deliver advice and guidance on a range of academic and university issues that may affect your experience.  This means helping students understand university policies and procedures as well as supporting students in university meetings. 

Our team of trained Staff and Peer Advisors are on hand all year round to offer help. The independent service works closely with the University of Portsmouth to resolve issues and ensure students are treated fairly.

Find us on campus! We’re in Gun House at The Union, next door to Cafe Coco.

An advisor will ask you about your situation and go through how to proceed and outline some steps you can take. The adviser will explore the options available to you, but any decisions made are yours so you are empowered to make the choices you feel suit you best, within the universities processes.

The Union Advice Service is independent from the University and all enquiries are dealt with in confidence.
