War in Ukraine

Alongside our friends and partners across the City, we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

Our response

We continue to watch in horror the terrible events unfolding in Ukraine and the devastating impact it is having on so many lives.

Alongside our friends and partners across the City, we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and support their right to be a sovereign, self-governing state.

Our thoughts are with all those directly impacted by the Russian Federation’s invasion. We'll continue to do everything we can to support those affected.

We're in direct contact with all our staff and students who have links to Ukraine, Russia and the surrounding region. This is to provide any practical help and wellbeing support they might need. 

Support for our colleagues and students

We know many people in the community are being impacted by this war. We offer support to all our students, colleagues and alumni with links to Ukraine and Russia, as well as Belarus, Lithuania and other bordering nations.

As a University of Sanctuary, we are committed to providing a welcoming place of safety for all.

Through CARA  (the Council for At Risk Academics), we'll continue to identify opportunities to assist academics threatened in the current conflict. And for students, we've introduced the NU Sanctuary Scholarship Scheme.

We're working to extend the support we can provide. We're working with our colleagues in the sector and local partners and organisations. We're committed to offering all the help we can to those who need it.
