Has a rainy afternoon spoiled your plans? Trying to be careful with money? We have lots of games, puzzles and more to help beat the boredom without spending a penny!

Wondering how to while away some time on these wintry days? You can borrow some games, puzzles, cook books or art kits on Canterbury campus! The College and Community Life team have a collection of things to borrow so you can spend some quality time playing games with your friends or flatmates, or alone and absorbed in trying a new recipe or completing a puzzle.

Have a browse through our collection below and get in touch with if there is anything in the below lists which you would like to borrow so we can arrange for you to pick it up at a convenient time and when to bring it back. For more information on support, activities and events on campus or online, check out the What’s On Events Calendar.
