Strathclyde Uni Campus Support
Any Strathclyde Uni student who has experienced any form of sexual violence at any point in their lives can access support on campus.
If you have experienced sexual violence at any point in your life, or know someone who has, and you would like to talk to someone we can offer you a confidential specialist support service on campus.
A drop-in service runs every Friday from 10:30am-12:30pm for one-to-one confidential support. Just turn up at reception at the Disability and Wellbeing Services (Level 4, Graham Hills Building). As well as the dro-n, we offer on-going support sessions on campus.
Who can use this service?
Any student who has experienced any form of sexual violence at any point in their lives can access support. Or, if you just want to ask some questions about something that has happened.
How do I access support?
- Attend the drop-in. Just ask for Jenny at reception during drop-in hours
- Text 07501 723 969 to request an appointment (appointments available Wednesdays and Fridays).
- Ask your student counsellor or Disability Advisor to refer you
What kind of support is available?
We can offer you one-off support if this is what you need, or longer term one-to-one sessions for survivors and family and friends of survivors.
We have a non-directive approach which means that we work with whatever you want to discuss during the sessions. We won't give you advice or ask a lot of questions and you are not required to go into details about what has happened to you.
We also advocate on your behalf if this is something that would be beneficial, whether within the university or out with. This can be discussed in more dtail in you sessions.
Is this support confidential?
The drop-in service is completely confidential, and information will not be shared with the university if you attend.
If you engage with structured support sessions, this will be confidential within the Disability and Wellbeing Service.
The only exception to this is when a child or vulnerable adult is at risk, where a student indicates that their life is in danger, or they may cause harm to themselves or to someone else. However we will, whenever possible, discuss this with you before any action is taken.
