We know that student life is proving to be a little strange and different this year. We want you to know that both your SU and the university services are still here for you. We are working hard to ensure every student has access to everything they need, and that you are supported through your university experience. We've got you!
Take a look below at some of the events, activities, and services aimed at bringing together and supporting the student community at the University of Bedfordshire.
With over 2000 members The University of Bedfordshire - Student Chat Group hosted on Facebook is a great way to reach out and talk to fellow students, whilst we need to keep things distant on the ground. Run by Beds SU this group is led by student conversation.
Beds SU provides students with free, impartial, and confidential advice and support on a variety of aspects of student life. Our dedicated Be Supported team are here for you, offering friendly, confidential advice and support for whatever obstacles you may face during your time at university. The team are currently able to provide assistance via a telephone or video call appointment or via email.
If you are looking to meet like-minded people who share the same or similar interests or hobbies, then joining a society is the perfect way to do this. In case you need extra encouragement, this year we’ve made Societies completely FREE to join!
