We provide a quiet, safe and stimulating classroom environment for children and young people to do their homework or get advice on their future.

Due to school closures, all IntoUniversity centres will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 to Monday 20th April 2020. Although centres are closed, we are open. Centres will transition to a virtual service of on-line and telephone support which will begin on Monday 23rd March and will operate throughout the planned closure period.

Before you contact us

If you would like to register a child with IntoUniversity, please first think about the following questions:

- Is the child or young person ‘looked-after’?

- Is the child or young person entitled to free school meals?

- Is the child or young person living in social housing?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, please get in touch with your nearest centre to discuss the support we can provide. You can find the contact details for all our centres here.

Academic Support

We run Academic Support sessions most days after school.

At the sessions, your child can receive help with their homework or advice and guidance on GCSE, A-Level and university choices. We also run specific workshops on career choices and skills.

If you'd like to find out more about the Academic Support sessions at your local centre, please visit our centre pages.


If your child has been visiting our Academic Support sessions regularly, s/he may be able to have an IntoUniversity mentor. Our mentors are either students at university, or professionals, and their aim is to help your child with school work, career choices and social skills.

If your child is offered the opportunity to have a mentor, you will be contacted immediately, and will be asked to meet with staff at the centre to ensure that you are happy with the decision.
