Support for Turkey and Syria

February 8th, 2023

Following the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday morning, the university has extended support to students who are likely to have been affected.

The university has reached out with an offer of support to all students who have registered their nationality, home country, or address as Turkey or Syria.

We are encouraging students who have been impacted by these events and are struggling with any issues – including academic or wellbeing problems – to reach out to us. They are able to book either a virtual or an in-person appointment through MyWellbeing by logging into the Student Life portal.

They have also been advised to reach out to their tutor or supervisor for further support or guidance if they wish. Chaplaincy and Faith Support also offer pastoral support and guidance for those with or without a faith.

If you are a member of staff who has been impacted, our Employee Assistance Programme offers free support for you and your loved ones.

If you would like to donate to the relief effort, below are some organisations:

Disasters Emergency Committee
Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management aid campaign
Turkish Red Crescent
