Although the staff at the Office for Student Affairs do their utmost to assist students, there are times when something may go wrong. In these cases, we would like to hear about your complaint – firstly, to check whether something can still be done, and secondly, to improve the quality of our work.

If you have suggestions, feedback or complaints about your experience with the Office for Student Affairs, please communicate these via the Law Knowledgebase.
