About Staff Social

Staff Social is all about getting you connected with the University community – its events, clubs, people and places. 

We can put you in touch with colleagues who are already making things happen, promote clubs and events for members of staff, and offer a space and support to help get your ideas off the ground.  

We invite you to take the opportunity to relax and socialise with collegues during your lunchbreak or after work, in the hope that this will contribute to your sense of satisfaction and well-being.

Staff Social Monthly Newsletter

At the beginning of each month we put out a newsletter with updates and information on what our clubs are up to, any upcoming events, and helpful tips and tools for staff to use.
