Take some time out from revision and coursework with our ResLife activities to help you to relax and feel good in between exams.
Our lovely ResLifeBU team has organised activities in and around your halls to help keep you calm and balanced..
Every morning, fresh fruit will be available in hall receptions from 8.00-9.30am to make sure you get an energy boost before your exams, and a stress-busting roadshow will tour all residences providing free professional head, neck and shoulder massages, craft workshops and Barney the dog. There's no need to book and the full schedule is below, so just pop along when you can to say hi!
Get some top tips from your fellow BU students including Danielle's 'stress-free studying', Imogen's 'how to cope with the stresses of uni' and Sam's 'top places to escape exam stress in Bournemouth'.
New for this year's summer exam period is the free, midnight UNIBUS service - E1 - which will run when the Sir Michael Cobham Library (Talbot Campus) closes. This means you can take full advantage of the library opening hours then travel home safely. This is a special service, which will run through Winton and Charminster before going to the Lansdowne Campus - check departure and arrival times and the route.
