Our Academic Help Desk is a ‘drop-by’ service which offers assistance to students who have general academic queries 

or who just need some help!

The Help Desk is located on the first floor of the library and is open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, during 

term-time, between 10am – 11am and 2pm – 3pm.  

The Help Desk can assist with general academic questions, referencing styles, online databases, finding sources etc.

What a current student has to say about ARO...

ARO helps students understand that even though they have a disability or learning difficulty they can still get through their studies like any other student – no other service in the college gives this kind of support!
