Winter Break (18 December - 4 January)


Over the winter break, your Students' Union will be closed (and staff will be on holiday) from Friday 18th December until Monday 4th January. That means you won't be able to reach us on our normal channels.


However, on Christmas day and Boxing Day, some of your SU Officers will be on campus with mulled wine, tea/coffee, and mince pies. Keep an eye on Nehaal's social media for dates and times: Instagram | Facebook | Twitter

You can also sign up to our Secret Santa gift exchange.

Additionally, have a look below for what else is going on in the next couple of weeks until we're back in the New Year:
