UCU strike action and support services

Student Support and Wellbeing's services are open during UCU (University and College Union) strike action from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 4 December 2019. The drop-in service is available each UCL working day.

If you have a pre-arranged appointment with one of our advisers or counsellors, please attend.

Please note that we are unable to answer any administrative questions about the strike, such as whether or not your classes will be running or how the strike might affect your studies. In these cases, please contact your academic department.
