Monday 4 December: Support session, badge and lanyard making and therapy dog (Medway)

Student Support and Wellbeing (SSW) are running a support session for students affected by the recent terrorist attacks in Israel and ongoing war and humanitarian crisis in Gaza. This is a drop-in session taking place from 13:00-14:00 on Monday, upstairs in Locke Building near the Coop, staffed by a mental health adviser and counsellor from SSW. All students are welcome.

Make a decorative badge or a lanyard for Disability History Month at the Venue. This is an artistic outlet to say who you are and wear around whenever you want.

Over lunchtime at Medway, you can meet the Pets as Therapy dog Bailey and friends! Chill out and have some cute cuddles.

Wednesday 6 December: Using AI in your studies and festive events

Do you want to know how you can use Artificial Intelligence (AI) in your studies? This workshop will explore fears, misconceptions and opportunities offered by AI.

And if you want to get in the festive mood, why not head to The Hub for the Winter Wonder Wednesday with a crafts corner, stalls, live music and festive treats!

Or if you’re at Canterbury campus, there’s a special festive Pause for Paws in Nexus with therapy dog Coco. You can also wrap up a book for a stranger or pick a surprise one for yourself.

Thursday 7 December: Self defence class and Cookies and Conversation

On Thursday lunchtime there’s a free self defence class for all students who identify as women and non-binary. The hour-long class is taken by an expert at Kent Sport, who will teach you practical skills to equip yourself and make you feel prepared for any situation.
