Whether you are self-isolating, or just staying in more during the lockdown – we know it can be tricky to find things to do to keep busy!
The University has been working closely with Liverpool Guild of Students to make sure that there are lots of covid-safe activities available for you to take part in, try out something new, and meet fellow students.
