Student Mentors: Who we are and what we do

Student Mentors logo

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

All 14 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

Talk to us! Visit our office, located next to the Duck & Scholar in the Vale Hub or get in touch on the details below. We’re open weekdays 4-8pm term time for all students living in university halls of residence. Drop in – no appointment necessary!

Hate Crime Reporting Image

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.
