Student Mediator


About Dr Ruth Siddall

Dr Ruth Siddall (homepage)

"I have been working in student support here at UCL for over 15 years.

My experience started in student residences when I became Deputy Warden at Ifor Evans Hall. Being a hall warden enables one to see all aspects, good and bad, of student life.

I very quickly became experienced in dealing with issues ranging from burst water pipes to major personal difficulties encountered by students.

In 2007 I became UCL’s Dean of Students (Welfare) and this role has given me a lot of experience in helping students work through problems that they encounter during their studies.

I feel committed to giving all students the optimum chance to graduate from UCL with a good degree whatever else life may throw at them.

Mediation is a route for students who find themselves in a position of disagreement with other members of the UCL community to resolve these conflicts in a mutually acceptable manner involving the least amount of stress."
