Maths & Statistics Support Service


We offer support and guidance to all students at the University of Southampton on a variety of mathematical and statistical topics, to help students develop their skills and become confident in their studies. Activities available include one-to-one tutorials, workshops, drop-in support and a range of resources.

See the hyperlinks to the right for resources for various mathematical and statistical topics, or scroll down for contacting us or booking one-to-one appointments.


Contact us

We recommend that you email with any short mathematical or statistical queries. We may be able to help you via email or we can arrange a 30-minute meeting to talk through the problem.

We will need to know:

  • The problem you are working on
  • What you have attempted so far to solve it
  • Any resources that you have already used
