Online Shop:


Although the Shop and Cafe are closed for now, you can still order some items via our online shop. There’s a January sale on too, so have a browse.



Societies and Volunteering Opportunities:


You can also still meet other students by getting involved in societies and volunteering digital opportunities. There's loads of virtual meet-ups for societies and micro-volunteering tasks that can be done from home too. There’s some helpful info in this article on volunteering safely during the pandemic if you are interested in getting involved.

Check out the societies calendar for upcoming events this term too.


Upcoming Events:


The Union still has plenty of upcoming virtual events for you this term that you won’t want to miss out on.

These include Netflix parties, yoga sessions, guest podcast screenings and much more.

We'll be continuing to work with the Officers and University to make sure you get everything you need over the next few weeks. To make sure we're focussing on the right things, tell us what's on your mind.
