Student Mentor Scheme

We’re your Student Mentor Scheme Team, here to offer you help & support whilst you live in university accommodation.

All 15 of us are current students at UoB, so we know what living in halls is really like!

We can help you with information, guidance and support in a range of areas - including wellbeing, accommodation, academic and financial queries

So if you have a query or need advice from a friendly fellow student – talk to us!

If you would like to speak to us please use the details below, or feel free to drop by our office!:

We are based at the Vale (next to the Duck & Scholar), our opening hours are 4pm-8pm Monday-Friday during term time.

Hate Crime Reporting

The Mentor Office is also a Third Party Reporting Centre. If you are a victim of (or have witnessed) hate crime or a hate related incident we can support you.

What is Hate Crime?

Hate crime is any incident, which constitutes a criminal offence, which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated by prejudice or hate. This can be motivated by someone’s race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national group, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

What can I do?

  1. In an emergency call 999 for help
  2. Call West Midlands Police on the 101 non-emergency number
  3. Report the incident online via the True Vision website
  4. Visit The Mentors Office and speak to an Advisor regarding the incident
  5. As a Third Party Reporting Centre, we can assist you in reporting the incident to the Police, including making an anonymous report to the Police.

More information on hate crime, how to report it, and personal safety tips, is available from the official True Vision website.
