Alcuin College Tutors

Our Alcuin College Tutors are there to make your time here as healthy and problem-free as we can. For most people, coming to University is a major life-changing opportunity which can bring with it new types of stress and unfamiliar feelings, such as homesickness. Our College Tutors are there to help.

They are a team of postgraduate students who live in residence with you. They provide confidential pastoral care, so that if you are experiencing any difficulties can talk to a friendly face in confidence. They are available from 09:00 until 18:00 hours and work closely with the College Manager and the College Administrator. 


In an emergency, always contact security on 01904 32 4444 or freephone 0800 43 3333.
