Newsletter Autumn 2016 Our mission: To organise sexual health, mental and physical health events and campaigns throughout the year, collaborating with other services, to raise awareness of the support available on and off campus to Brunel students.
Welcome to Brunel! Starting university can be a wonderful exciting experience. For some, itâ€™s your first time living independently and there seems like an endless list of activities you want to try on your doorstep. However with lots of information being thrown at you in your first few weeks of university and loads of new faces, itâ€™s completely natural if it feels overwhelming. The most important thing to remember is to take care of yourself!
