Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I want to talk in private?

Our front desks are screened for your privacy but we understand if you'd like to speak somewhere more confidential. We have semi-private pods within the Hub as well as a private room for any conversations you don't want to have within the main space. Just let the Student Hub Assistant know or simply indicate to the sign on the desk and we'll be happy to move to a more private space. 

Although our skilled Student Hub Assistants are able to answer many of your questions, we also have a team of specialist advisers supporting us, including staff with experience in mental health, money advice, disability services, careers advice, immigration advice or academic/fees/programmes enquiries. If we can't respond to your enquiry right away, we'll refer you to the right person and will make sure you know what the next steps will be.

The Student Services Hub staff are all part of the Student Support Services team, which is part of Student, Academic and Corporate Services. They take your confidentiality very seriously. To find out more about how we protect and use your personal data, please read our confidentiality and data sharing statement

We currently can’t accept any paper copies of documents while our staff work remotely. Please either upload these via your Portal using the “Upload and Student Services Document” option with in “I want to..” or alternatively email them directly to ask@stir.ac.uk. Should this not be an option for you please contact the Student Services Hub team for advice.

The Student Services Hub is not an emergency service. If you are having an emergency, you should contact the emergency services immediately on 999. You can also check our out-of-hours and emergency support here. If you are in crisis and think that you might be at risk of harm, you should contact your GP or an organisation such as Samaritans. If you believe someone else is at risk of harm, you should call the Police on 999 immediately.
