If you think you or someone you know has been discriminated against there is a variety of support options available.  


Listening Ears: While not trained counsellors, our Listening Ears volunteers are trained and dedicated staff members from across the university who provide informal and confidential support to our students. Our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have a huge range of life experience. They help students identify ways of resolving problems and locate other support services. Issues might relate to welfare, equality, diversity, bullying and harassment (including on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, race, sex and sexual orientation).

Counselling at the university: We have professional counsellors who are experienced in working with psychological and emotional issues. They abide by the Ethical Framework set out by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and provide confidential support within a brief therapy model.

Students' Union: The Greenwich Students' Union (GSU) is independent from the above support services within the university. If you wish to speak to an advisor about an issue related to discrimination, please contact the GSU Advice Team.


Report + Support Students and staff can disclose how they have been affected by discrimination using the University’s Report and Support system. You can choose to do this anonymously or you can request support from an advisor. If you choose to talk to an advisor, they will be able to talk through the reporting options and support available to you, in confidence.
