Student Support

Sexual Harrassment

The Department of Mathematics has endorsed the UCLU Zero Tolerance Pledge for sexual harassment. Students can contact UCL Student Mediator Dr Ruth Siddall to seek advice and assistance with the resolution of complaints, involving staff or other students or UCL services. You can also contact our Departmental Equal Opportunity Liaison Officer, Helen Higgins.

Student Union Advice Service

The Student Union also offers an Advice Service which can offer advice regarding:

  • Academic issues - including extenuating circumstances, plagiarism and complaints
  • Housing - including contract checks and housemate disputes
  • Employment - including unpaid wages and part time employment contracts
  • Many other legal and university matters

Wellbeing, Disability and Mental Health

UCL has a team of expert wellbeing, disability and mental health advisors who provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space, in which you can discuss any issues that may be affecting your ability to study.

Departmental Mentors

We recognise that female PhD students are in the minority in our department, so Prof. Karen Page and Dr. Nadia Sidorova act as mentors to these students. They can be contacted any time for informal discussions as well as running occasional events.
