Join us online for a chat

Given that we are now in lockdown and that students are facing additional stresses, SRUCSA is introducing some new chat sessions and fortnightly Class Rep check-ins, to better support you.

We recognise that the current circumstances may result in additional stress that affects some student groups more than others. We will be holding sessions tailored for Student Parents and Student Carers to get in touch with peers in similar circumstances. If you aren’t free during the time in the schedule, please let us know, and we can make sure to add you to the group, so you can still speak to the others over chat.

We will also be holding more general sessions open to all students. These are an opportunity to show off your pets, plant collections or just have a chat with other students.

The fortnightly Class Rep sessions are an opportunity for all Class Reps to speak to SRUCSA about student/class issues or ask questions around the current circumstances. These sessions are not compulsory and are not a replacement of Student Panel sessions. They are an opportunity for SRUCSA and Class Reps to touch base on things that are important to their class groups. We feel this is an important opportunity for you to be involved and have your say on changes, as the education situation continues to be ever-changing to follow guidelines as they are released.

Sessions will begin from Tuesday the 26th of January and will take place fortnightly.

Here is when these sessions will run:

  • Monday 12:30 – 13:30: Student Parents
  • Tuesday 12:30 – 13:30: Class Rep Check-ins
  • Wednesday 12:30 – 13:30: Student Carers
  • Friday 12:20 – 13:30: Chit-Chat (all students welcome)

To join in, join our Student-Only Space on Teams.

On Monday 25th January as SRUCSA is hosting a Brew Monday event – please feel free to come along!

The relaunch of SRUCSA’s Open Door is taking place in the first week of February – Open Door sessions are now themed each month and will run alternating to the above Student Sessions.

If you have an issue that you would like to talk to us about more confidentially, or you can’t make one of these sessions, you can book some time in our calendar, and we’ll always be happy to talk.

If you feel there is anything additional SRUCSA could run to help support you or help you run, please get in touch with us.
