Beautiful Campuses: Summer

I don't know about you, but 2023 seems to be flying by! It is summer again and the end of the academic year in the UK.

Summer is a time when we start to reflect on the year gone by, start to think about the planning for the subsequent year, but also to take a rest. For many of us that won't necessarily mean being away from our work place, so finding places and environments on campus where we can relax can be really valuable.

I enjoy this time of year for exploring my campus and finding green spaces I haven't discovered before. This year already I have found two little quiet oases hidden between buildings.

For me, my latest discoveries have been the new gardens wrapped around the new humanities block, and a beautiful rose garden tucked away behind the student services building.

The work of the estates team is fantastic, creating wonderful natural spaces for everyone to enjoy.

So this summer, I encourage you to explore your campus and seek out the unexpected nature environments, you might just find the perfect spot for a recharge during your working day.
