Mission Statement & Programme

We are committed to enhancing the student experience through the delivery of a unique programme of activities and the provision of support and guidance. We provide a holistic and inclusive living experience focussing on bringing university opportunities and services into the hearts of Halls.

The Programme aims to get students involved with a wide range of different opportunities including Halls sports teams, volunteering, taking part in workshops, socials and Charity fundraisers. The main elements the programme focusses on are the 6 Ways to Wellbeing:

  • Connect: Make contact with the people around you; with friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and the community
  • Learn and Discover: Make time to try something new. Rediscover an old interest!
  • Be Active: Go for a walk or run. Cycle. Try a new sport or activity. Being active makes you feel good.
  • Take Notice: Lift your eyes from the next deadline or demand. Be aware of the world around you and savour the moment, whether you are on the way to university, eating lunch or talking to friends.
  • Give: Do something for a colleague, friend or stranger. Smile. Volunteer your time to help a neighbour or community group - seeing your happiness linked with the wider community can be very rewarding!
  • Be Healthy: Look after yourself - stay safe, respect your body, make healthy choices. Make real food and share a meal. Sleep stress away and spend a while enjoying silence. Being healthy will help you feel confident, alert and get the most out of your experience.

We hope that students will really make the most of their time in halls and leave with key skills that will help them in the rest of their student life and beyond!
