With the exam period starting today, we have a range of activities to support you and help you to relax in between exams.
Our lovely ResLifeBU team has organised a range of wellbeing activities in and around your halls to help keep you calm and balanced during the next two weeks.
Every morning, fresh fruit will be available in each of the hall receptions between 8am and 9.30am to give you that welcomed boost needed before your exams. A stress-busting roadshow will be taking place throughout the exam period, providing free professional head, neck and shoulder massages, craft workshops and Barney the dog. You don't need to book the roadshow activities; just check the times below and pop along when you can to say hi.
