Hurricane Irma and the earthquake in Mexico

The University community continues to be concerned about the recent events occurring overseas, in particular distressing images of the impact of the earthquake in Mexico and damage caused by hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and United States.  We are aware that these incidents can have significant impact for people in our community whether directly to you or to your friends and family.

We wanted to take the opportunity to offer our sympathies to those affected and also ensure that you are aware of the support that is available to you from the University.  If you are outside the UK at this time these services can be accessed by you from overseas if you need them.

We wish all our new and continuing students a safe start to their studies.
