Support for Kingston University students affected by Israel and Gaza

As a university with students from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, Kingston University understands that some students might be affected by the troubling situation unfolding in Gaza and Israel, especially if they have family, friends or connections currently residing there.

If you feel like you need additional support in your studies during this time, you can head to any of the KU Information Centres, located within the libraries across campuses. We would also recommend checking out the Student Wellbeing Hub available through MyKingston for more information on local support services and other useful resources.

Drop-In services are also available through the KU Counselling and Wellbeing Team, with online drop-ins taking place on Wednesday and Thursday and face-to-face, walk-in sessions available at Penrhyn Road’s Health Centre from 12-1pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The team is also able to provide counselling, listening and stress management services for students who feel like they may benefit from them.

Furthermore, a multi-faith team of faith advisers are available for advice and confidential prayer - if you're a KU student interested in speaking to them, feel free to email [email protected] for more information.

Lastly, as a university which actively promotes diversity and inclusion, we remind students to remain respectful and considerate of each other. If you witness any form of harassment, please don't hesitate to report it through the form available through MyKingston.
