Tune into your favourite podcast or listen to one recommended by the Residence Life team.

We hope you are settling in well at the University. As we start Week 2, remember to take a breather. How about enjoy a stroll around our beautiful campus? Give your brain and body a boost by taking a gentle walk around the campus whilst listening to a podcast. We all know that exercise is great for our wellbeing, and using the time to listen to a podcast can be a great way to stimulate your mind, too. Go solo, or with your bubble and maintain social distancing. 

Hopefully you might have had some time to explore the campus and local area. There are lots of open spaces to enjoy.

Find information on self-guided and virtual campus tours available on our webpages:

How do I take part?

Join us briefly on Zoom at the start of the session if you want to talk with other students about your favourite podcasts and get to know others on campus. The session will be led by an RA. Stay for as little or as long as you like before planning to take your self-guided tour of campus. If you head out on a walk with others, please remain in small groups of no more than six people. Make sure you have read the University advice on keeping safe on campus.
