Opening Times

The Advice Centre is open from 9.15 am to 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday, all year round (except Public Holidays) and is located on the middle floor of Student Central on the main campus.

We operate an appointment system, but in the case of extreme emergency students will be seen on the same day.
