What's on

If you are running a University event, and you would like to see it on the main University events listing, please send the information via our online form. We will then check it and add it to the web pages.

Selected events listed on those pages are included in the Friday morning "What's On" mailing to all staff & students.

Display screens

Most of the TV screens around our campuses are now on the same system, and each shows content tailored to that screen. Some show only local content, some show a centralised playlist, and many show a combination of both.

If you wish to display something on the screens, you can check its suitability with the us Or create / provide slides 1920x1080px landscape, or video (no sound, and with captions/subtitles) to the Internal Comms team. You'll need to tell us which screen(s) you want it to appear on, and we'll check it matches the plan for those location(s).

A template with instructions for creating slides can be downloaded from the Brand webpages.
