Within the Student Hub there is dedicated support for students within the LGBTQ+ community, providing a safe space for students to be supported and where their gender identity/sexuality can be expressed authentically. Named contacts within the team will be available for general support, advice and guidance. The named contact will be a Wellbeing-based Student Advice Team Leader or Student Adviser; these individuals form a group that have dedicated knowledge in supporting Solent's LGBTQ+ students and will have specific knowledge and understanding of the barriers this community could face.
Please remember that any Solent staff member can provide non-judgemental support in a safe space, however we’ve created this dedicated group of individuals with more specialised knowledge should students feel they want to talk to someone more dedicated knowledge and understanding.
More information can be found via The Student Hub – ask about our LGBTQ+ student support.
