About Us

The letter “sigma” (∑ - upper case and σ – lower case) is the 18th letter of the Greek alphabet, corresponding to our Roman letter ‘s’. It is much loved by mathematicians and statisticians but more importantly: sigma is the name of the team at Coventry delivering mathematics and statistics support ‘free at the point of delivery’ to ALL Coventry students.

Six important things you need to know about sigma:

six people icon sigma is for EVERY student from all Coventry University campuses, regardless of course or Faculty.
blue calendar icon sigma's drop-in sessions in the Library and Online is open all year but our opening hours vary according to the time of year. For the current opening hours, please see our drop-in timetable
blue clock icon No appointment is required for the drop-in sessions - just drop in and a tutor will help with your questions as soon as they are free. You would be seen on a one-to-one basis and/or you can come as a group.
