The University offers a huge range of resources and study support across all our campuses to help you make the most of your learning experience.

Whether you need guidance on coursework or help finding an obscure journal, access to the internet or language lessons, we have the technology, services and resources to ensure you get the support you need.

During term time your academic advisor will always be on hand to offer advice and guidance.

Free wireless and networked high-speed internet access is widely available across all campuses and halls of residence, and in all the libraries.

Specialist equipment and assistive technology are available for students with a disability, specific learning difficulty or chronic medical condition. The Wessex Needs Assessment Centre (WNAC) provides specialist assessments for students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties (dyslexia), many of whom are eligible for the Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA). Following assessment, students have access to ongoing support, advice and guidance.

Our Centre for Language Study offers resources and language courses for students and staff across the University. Equipped with the very latest technology, the Centre has courses and resources in a wide range of languages, including Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Latin, Portuguese and Spanish. The main Language Resources Centre offers an extensive selection of publications, self-access materials, tutorials, audio-visual learning resources, reference materials and the latest multimedia software.

Key facts

The University offers a service for people who may be experiencing harassment or bullying, and may need someone to listen, to understand what has happened as well as some assistance in determining what your options are. Harassment contacts, including Psychology's Nicky Baverstock can also give support and advice on what might happen next where you have had a complaint made against you.
