main content

The Maths Skills Support Centre provides academic support to all students who require help with the mathematics they encounter in their course. Staffed by Dr Peter Davidson and Mrs Sandra Houston, we will try to help you with any topic that you are struggling with. You can use our drop-in sessions to ask a quick question or to spend some time studying new or old material, while our Friday appointments can be used to get feedback on recent assessments or to discuss any issues in more depth.

Opening Times

We are now runing appointments only from 19th May during the summer months. 

Please email:

We will open drop-in in the 2 weeks prior to the resits. Exact dates to follow. 

If you're visiting the centre for the first time then we suggest you do so during one of our drop-in sessions. A follow-up appointment can then be made for future help.

Where are we?

Room LT308 in the Livingstone Tower.

Feel free to drop by or contact us to make an appointment.
