Ideas to make the most of your campus time this week

If you’re joining us on campus this week and have some spare time on your hands, you can rely on us to help you fill a few hours!

Whether it’s social events, something sporty or you’d rather spend your time developing techniques to help with your studies, we’ve got something to keep you busy. Here’s a suggestion or two for each day but there are plenty more options to choose from if you visit your ‘My Liverpool’ app and click on ‘view events’.

You should also check out the jam-packed programme of events organised by the University’s Halls team, which are running throughout the week.

And remember, from Monday to Friday, you can book on to a tour of the Harold Cohen and Sydney Jones libraries. Tours last around 20 minutes and will show you all you need to get started in the library. Times and dates for the library tours are listed on the My Liverpool app.

Here are some further ideas, which unless otherwise stated are open to new and returning students.
