New Enquiry Centre at the University of Dundee

Earlier today, University of Dundee Rector Brian Cox officially opened a new advice centre for students on campus - see right.    

Situated at DUSA, adjacent to Campus Green and the Union shop at the foot of Balfour Street, the new Enquiry Centre will henceforth be home to the university’s Student Services team and relocated to the new premises at DUSA from today.

The University has updated me as follows :

"The prominent facility at the heart of campus will act as a first-stop drop-in centre for students requiring assistance but unsure where, what or who to ask for help.   The team can help with all types of enquiries including travel, accommodation, finances, study support, health and careers advice. If they are unable to help they will put the student in touch with the appropriate service.

Enquiry Centre Manager Margaret Wyllie said, “We are delighted to be making this move to premises fitted out precisely for our purposes and excited to be able to improve the service we offer students.

“Having such a prominent presence at the heart of the University means all students will know where to find help if they need it.    The new Centre will also mean we can enhance the range of activities on offer and, with the assistance of Student Services colleagues, we will arrange workshops, events and activities aimed at helping students develop the personal skills required throughout their academic career and after they graduate.”

The Enquiry Centre will also maintain a regular presence at the Ninewells and Fife campuses and make information leaflets available at strategic points throughout the entire University estate.    If required, Citizen Advice Bureau appointments can also be arranged on main campus each Tuesday afternoon during the academic year."
