At SRUC, we aim to provide a supportive service in an informal, flexible and, where appropriate, confidential way.

All students, whether you have (or suspect) a disability or not are encouraged to fill out our student support form. We will send it to the student support team at your campus who will use it to make sure you get any support you need.
