We loved welcoming our students. Now let’s stay connected

We absolutely loved meeting you during Welcome Week, and talking to you about the Campus Heart, the University’s development programme to transform the spaces and services on Tyndall Avenue, creating opportunities for staff and students to come together to learn, get support and just relax.

We had a fantastic team of students who helped us on the stand opposite the new Indoor Sports Centre – and more than 300 students signed up already during Welcome Week to help us shape our plans.

Here are some of our favourite moments!

At the Welcome Fair, renowned print artist Annie Nicholson, aka The Fandangoe Kid, ran workshops at the SU tent to explore belonging at Bristol University. The art created during the workshop will be displayed on campus. Get involved to help shape your campus Welcome Week may be over, but we’d love you to get involved in shaping the campus and the next opportunity to take part is when Indoor Sports Centre officially re-opens on World Mental Health Day, Wednesday 10 October.

Take part in a free 90-minute exercise class (10.30-12.00pm) or print artist the Fandangoe Kid will be back to run a workshop to explore how movement can support positive mental wellbeing (10.00am – 12.00pm) – make sure to sign up for that.

As always, we’d love to hear from you if you have any other, thoughts or comments, so sign up to get involved in the Campus Heart programme.
