Connect Student Network

Student-to-student service.

Connect Website

Connect is a student-to-student service with one very simple aim – to do everything we can to give you the best possible student experience. Students have said in the past that they find it easier to iron out things by talking to other students who have been in the same situation. If you’re new in UL it can be hard to find someone in your immediate circle who understands, so we’re here to help.

We try match you up with students in a similar situation who might be able to help you out. We interview and sign up students from all kinds of backgrounds and courses and follow a ‘no problem is too big or too small’ ethos, so whatever might be bothering you we hope to find someone who can say ‘I’ve been there.

Please Talk Vigil

October 25th, 2010

A Please Talk vigil will take place on campus on Tuesday 2nd November. We hope as many students as possible attend this vigil in aid of suicide awareness.

We will meet at 4pm at the Students’ Union to collect candles and posters, then make our way to the 2 gates for 4:45 and begin walking in to catch the attention of exiting traffic. At 5:45 we will all meet back in the Student Centre and hold a minute silence for all those who have died by suicide.

Hopefully you will be able to attend
