Advice and Support

How we can help

During your time at Robert Gordon University, sometimes things may go wrong or you may need a little extra support – and that’s perfectly okay. This section will hopefully point you in the right direction. At RGU:Union, we want to provide you with help to fully enjoy your time at RGU. We will listen, at a time that is convenient for you, and promise not to judge you but to offer help and support. You can be assured we will treat your concerns confidentially.

For details of the areas we can provide support on, please see the links above.

How to contact us

If you need to ask for impartial advice on any matter affecting you, you can speak to our Student Advice Coordinator, Stephen Fiddes. The Advice Coordinator can be contacted via email (advice@rguunion.co.uk), phone (01224 262294), or web chat (see the chat box in the bottom right of this page). Alternatively, you can visit him in person via appointment, or during the drop-in sessions listed below, even during vacation periods. Our elected officers can also assist you with queries related to their area of representation.

Details of any meetings and the content of any discussion will not be shared with anyone other than the Advice Coordinator without the agreement of the student. If you have used the service and have any ideas on how it can be developed and improved, please complete our survey here
