Help and Support

We’re here to support you through the exam period. From Monday 20 May to Friday 07 June between 8-9am you can grab a free breakfast from Common Ground and Old Bar and there are plenty of wellbeing activities on during the three weeks.


Treat yourself to a free bacon, sausage or veggie sausage sandwich at Old Bar or pick up a free croissant or porridge at Common Ground to fuel your day.  Add a filter coffee or tea for just 50p.


Common Ground will also be open for longer to give you space to relax and revise.
