Keep Calm with the Students’ Union

Whether you need a little extra motivation, advice on your studies or a relaxing break from studying, the Students’ Union are always there to help.

From now until 23 June, they want to help students stay focused, healthy, and calm during the exam period.

So, to help with this, they are delighted to announce an extra setting to study in and an opportunity for students to spend some quality time with furry friends.

The LSU Building – which has been recently refurbished – will be a 24/7 space until 20 June, so students can have an additional place to revise if they want a change of scenery from their home or the Library.

Please ensure that before entering the building you have a recent negative Covid-19 test result, bring your face mask, and maintain social distancing measures when inside. Masks must be worn when walking around but can be removed once sat down.

In addition, the team are delighted to announce that they’ll be running puppy petting sessions again as part of their Keep Calm campaign to give students a well-earnt break.

The sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 3 June
  • Thursday 10 June
  • Tuesday 15 June
  • Monday 21 June

You can book a 30-minute slot between 10am-1.30pm and 2.30pm-4.30pm on any of the days listed above here.

And to support you with your wellbeing, Welfare and Diversity Executive Officer Alex Marlowe wrote a blog post earlier this year with more information about the various University and LSU support services available, as well as his advice for coping with assessments and deadlines, particularly during a challenging year in which the pandemic has impacted our lives.

You can also view study tips and details about the LSU Advice service on the Keep Calm webpage.
