Statement: Turkey & Syria Earthquake

A statement from the GUSRC Executive on the devastating earthquake in Turkey & Syria.


We are greatly saddened by the news of the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria. Our thoughts are with all of those affected and those working tirelessly in the rescue operations.

For any students who need support, please reach out to the University via their support page:

If you are facing financial hardship as a result of the earthquake you can apply for additional support from the University’s Discretionary or Hardship Funds:

If you think your studies will be impacted by this, for example you will require an extension to any submission deadlines, we would encourage you to contact our SRC Advice Centre for advice.

At the request of the GU Turkish Society, we would like to direct students to an appeal for help run by the Association of Turkish Alumni and Students in Scotland. Learn more here:
