Summer events: on campus and online

Posted on

by the Events team

To recognise your amazing achievements over the past year, and to say thank you for your hard work, patience and resilience, we’ll be bringing you a range of online and in-person events during May and June. Plus a way to reflect on the past year on social media.

Did someone say Ferris wheel?!

See Frenchay Campus from new heights on a Ferris wheel; enjoy some free ice cream; go play some crazy golf; sit with friends in a field of socially distant hearts; get involved in the front row at our Virtual Live Comedy Event.

Plus we’re organising a social down at the Arnolfini where you can expect discounted drinks and an exclusive private seating area for UWE Bristol staff and students!

Whether you’re joining us on campus or online, we hope there’s something for you to enjoy. Some events require registration in advance so take a look and get booking!

How has the pandemic changed you in a positive way?

We’d also love to know how you feel the pandemic has changed you in a positive way – so print our template, write your response, take a picture or use our Instagram story template and pop it on social with the hashtag #TeamUWE.

It might be ‘I am stronger’ or ‘I am more connected to my community’ – we can’t wait to see your pictures!

We look forward to seeing you on campus and online!

Easter at UWE Bristol

Posted on

Our campuses will be closed from 17:00 on Thursday 1 April and will re-open from 08:30 on Wednesday 7 April 2021.

Travel and tesing

We would recommend that you stay in your term-time accommodation where possible over the Easter break but if you do decide to head home, please get tested before you travel. It’s quick, easy and it makes sure that we’re all doing our part in keeping our community healthy.

International students

As for all students, we would recommend that you stay in your term-time address over Easter, but if you do plan to travel, check additional entry requirements and restrictions before travelling and before returning to the UK. Please also check with your programme leader as, if your return is delayed in any way, this may have an impact on your studies.

Library opening hours

Our Libraries will be open throughout the Easter break on our existing reduced opening hours. Take a look at our Coronavirus updates for library users webpage to find information about which services are available, and the changes we’ve made to how we manage our spaces.

Online Library and study support

Access e-books, databases and journals online and brush up on key study skills with our online study skills workbooks.

Plus, LinkedIn Learning has thousands of online training videos for software, design and business skills.

Wellbeing support

We have a range of wellbeing support available online, by phone or text and self-help resources.

24/7 textline

The Students’ Union and UWE, in partnership with Crisis Textline, have launched a 24/7 textline. This service lets you text 24/7 crisis support for free. All texts are answered by trained volunteers, with support from experienced clinical supervisors. If you’re in distress, text UWE to 85258.

IT Support

If you have any IT issues over the Easter break, you can contact IT Services online and by phone.

Keep connected

We’re sure you’re looking forward to summer as much as we are but for now, we must keep our efforts up and continue to follow the rules and government guidelines.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t connect and have fun! We’ve pulled together the range of activities and resources available on our University life in coronavirus webpage. You can find online events to keep you connected to others, tips and advice on how to keep on top of your wellbeing and online learning support.
