RUSU is continuing to work with the University to support
students and staff throughout this difficult time. See below
updates from RUSU departments:
Events & Venues
All cancelled event tickets are in the process of being
refunded and #PLUR4 has been postponed. The events team are in
the process of developing some ‘online events’, including a
virtual quiz night and acoustic night.
The student activities team are working out how to deliver
committee training online—relevant students will be contacted
about this directly. We have set up a new
community Facebook group
for all students and staff to join; it is a space to share
ideas and tips, for clubs and societies to post any updates,
and for everyone to come together and support each other
during this uncertain time.
The advice team are continuing to offer support for students
with academic, housing or money issues. If you feel you need
support, in the first instance
contact them through the online form. Although they are not able to offer face to face advice,
Advisors will be happy to provide support by email, phone or
skype during usual office hours (10:00-17:00, Monday-Friday).
The representation team are still contactable digitally
09:00-17:00 Monday-Friday. Officers will be campaigning to
ensure students are supported with their wellbeing, have
access to their studies and are assessed fairly throughout
this time. Although the Teaching and Learning showcase has
been postponed, we will still be sending out emails to
Excellence Award nominees and winners to let them know they
have been nominated or won, so watch this space!
If you are a course rep or senior rep, keep an eye out for
direct emails from the representation team regarding online
activities and training. If you have any queries relating to
representation, please email
and we will endeavour to get back to you asap.
