Inclusive Pride Flag

Events roundup 30 January – 5 February

This week marks the start of LGBT+ History Month. From 1 February, look out for Pride flags on buildings as well as the Tensegritree outside Marlowe. These flags represent many different LGBTQ+ identities. Find out what’s on for LGBT+ History Month.

Thursday is also Time to Talk Day. Make space in your day for a conversation about mental health. Join us on campus for events encouraging conversation, or find out about support services if you need to talk to a mental health professional.

See a roundup of what’s on this week:

Monday: Wellbeing Café and Skills to Succeed in Data and Tech Career Panel

The Wellbeing Café is a space to connect with other students in a relaxed environment with a focus on promoting your wellbeing and mental health through activity. It’s a weekly event held in the K-Bar Red Room in Keynes College.

Join this Skills to Succeed in Data and Tech Career Panel to meet representatives from a business tech consultancy and learn about how your skills (from any degree) can be applied to roles in data and tech.

Tuesday: Free community breakfast (Medway) and considering PG study drop in

Together with the University of Greenwich, we’re piloting a free community breakfast for students at Medway on Tuesdays and Thursdays in term-time to help with the cost of living.

If you’re an undergrad student considering staying on for a Master’s degree, then come along to our library drop-in session in Nexus in Templeman Library. Ask questions and find out more about our range of courses and scholarships.

Wednesday: UCU strike day, Period Café and Puppy Yoga (Medway)

Wednesday is a UCU strike day, so your teaching may be affected today. Find out how to prepare for a strike day.

The Period Café, part of LGBT+ History Month, is a safe space to discuss period anxiety, period poverty, menstruation dysphoria or other issues around periods and menstruation with fellow students. Hot drinks and cake will be provided.

Boost your mood with puppy yoga at Medway campus! During the class, you’ll move through yoga poses while a selection of puppies free roam around the room. Tickets cost £4.

Thursday: Time to Talk Day events and Pronoun Badge Making

Thursday is Time to Talk Day. Join us at Kent Community Oasis Garden (KentCOG) in Park Wood for a chat, some seed planting and perhaps rehome one of our houseplants. We’re hoping to help get people chatting about their wellbeing, but there’s no pressure to do so.

You can also head to Nexus in Templeman Library for free tea and coffee, rock painting, affirmation postcards and more as part of #TimeToTalk day.

In Woody’s, as part of LGBT+ History Month, you can get creative and make your own pronoun badge.
