We are still here. The team are all working remotely to continue helping and supporting you.

The University’s Covid-19 update page contains all the latest information. Please keep checking this.

Brookes Union Advice Service

Our Advice Service is still open virtually, as the team are all working remotely. You can still access the same level of support by emailing su.advice@brookes.ac.uk. Please include: your name, student number, email, phone number and a short summary of the issue. Do take a look at our FAQs beforehand though, as it may be that your question is already answered.

Student Community

We’ve set up a virtual community - the Brookes Isolation Station - for students who are looking for some company during this unusual, and potentially stressful, time. We’ll be hosting activities through this, posting recommendations for Netflix binges and more. You can use it to chat to one another and post your own #StayAtHome tips. Find it here.

Student Activities

The Societies Team will be working from home for the foreseeable future. You can reach them on su.societies@brookes.ac.uk, and they are trying to help you as much as possible remotely. The team are also busy putting together some activities for you to do together...virtually. If you have an idea for an activity or want to run one, please message us on Facebook or drop us an email at su.societies@brookes.ac.uk.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

The University’s Wellbeing Service are doing everything they can to keep offering services to students. They have put together a guide to their services and additional support. We also produced a short guide to managing your mental health during these difficult and uncertain times.

Volunteering

If you feel well, and up to it, there are a number of ways you can help your local community. We’ve put some links together here. The NHS are now also looking for Volunteer Responders: Members of the public can sign up quickly and easily at goodsamapp.org/NHS to become NHS Volunteer Responders, and can be called on to do simple but vital tasks such as:

  • delivering medicines from pharmacies;
  • driving patients to appointments;
  • bringing them home from hospital;
  • or making regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home.

Make sure you follow all the guidance and stay safe.
