Finding support that works for you

By UALSocial 24 Aug 2023

University is a time of change. You change where you live, where you study and of course, who you live with. For some people, even your language changes! 

Change isn’t easy, but you don’t have to go through it all alone. 

All of these changes mean you may need a little help. There are a lot of different support networks available to you at UAL, from Student Services to articles right here on Halls Life.

Remember, you can always speak to your halls Residence Manager if you have any pressing concerns. They're there to make your time in halls as enjoyable as possible! You can find your Residence Manager contact details in our Handy Halls Guides or you'll find them in and around the communal areas carrying out their duties.
