COVID-19 - National Lockdown

We are currently in a National Lockdown which means you must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary.

What does this mean for student group activity?

  • All society activity must be online, and it is actively encouraged.
  • No in person activity can go ahead in any number of people. This does not mean all the fun has to stop though. The Commitee Hub on the website has lots of information on what you can do, including how to host online socialsinformation about online guest speakersgames nights and other ideas. Funding is available to help you put on these events, and more information on how to apply for them can be found here.
  • Do Something Different will also continue online, if you'd like your online activity or taster sessions to be advertised on the DSD website (only criteria is it must be open for anyone to join), fill in the form on this link. There's also support in funding to help you put on the event, and the opportunities team are here to help you with logistics if you need it. If you have any questions about DSD, please email Jess at
  • If you're looking for some stay at home activities, why not look at our ideas here. You can also keep up to date with all of the latest events and activities that you can get involved with over on our events page here.
  • We know that this past year has been tough, and you may not have had the opportunities that you usually would have to gain additional skills alongside your studies, so that's why we've also created Your Personal Development Programme (YourPDP) which is a collection of resources, live events, workshops, training sessions and classes that you can get involved with to learn some additional skills covering topics such as employability, wellbeing, creativity, life skills (and more!). You can find out more information here.
