If you are missing your pets, or would like to spend some time in the company of a friendly dog, then come and meet Monty.

On Friday 25 May, staff and students from the School of Computing have the opportunity to relax with a canine companion. Monty the cockapoo will be available for cuddles from 10.00-12.00 on the veranda of The Shed in Cornwallis.

Orla Garratt, Marketing and Communications Manager for the school said; ‘This is the second time that Monty has visited the School after he enjoyed the attention on his first visit during wellbeing week in March. Lots of students who have pets at their family home enjoyed spending time with him as they were missing their own animals.’

Other tools are available to help students through the stresses of the exam period such as the wellbeing app and the Big White Wall confidential support website.

Students can also contact the University’s wellbeing team and Kent Union for further advice.
