That's always the case, but now more than ever we may need some extra help and support.
We've pulled together the priority contacts that may be helpful to get in touch with over this period of time.

During this time, Advice SU will be also working closely with the Student Voice and Student Officer teams to ensure that we as a Students' Union are representing your interests and raising your frequently asked questions, concerns and issues to senior Queen's staff, to ensure that we get the answers.
