Coronavirus (Covid-19) Hub

We want to reassure our members that the Students’ Union is working incredibly hard to ensure you're kept up-to-date with all the vital information regarding the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We appreciate the volume of information being sent your way could be quite overwhelming, so we've created this hub to give you quick links to key advice, guidance, and our latest news updates. We've also included a tracker so you can see which of our services are still in operation, and in what capacity.

Advice & Guidance

Our Services

We've been working hard to make our events and services as safe and as accessible as possible. Below you'll find updates on the current status of each area of work we deliver. Alongside this, we have published detailed guidance on how our events will run and the risk assessments we have carried out. These documents are all live and subject to change based on updates to Government advice.

Keeping you safe


We are continuing to deliver digital access to vital advice services through our website, by email, and via virtual appointments. If you've already looked through our web pages or the Coronavirus Hub and you can't find the information you're after, or if you'd prefer to discuss something, you can email us with any questions or to ask for a virtual appointment. You can also attend one of our drop-in sessions, taking place every Tuesday and Thursday (13:30-15:30) over the summer break. Check out our events calendar for information on how to join.

The Students' Union Building is closed for the summer break.

The Union Shop remains open over the summer (Monday-Sunday, 08:00-18:00) to ensure you are still able to get your hands on the essentials, from fruit and veg through to loo roll, soap and loads more. A click and collect service is also available through our online shop.

The Union Helpdesk is closed for the summer break. Please email with any enquiries you have related to our services.

Your new officer team for 2021/22 (Henn, Maia, Alice, and Alex) are busy preparing for the new academic year as they look to deliver their manifesto aims and ultimately make your student experience the best it can be. If you have any questions for them, please contact them via email or through their RHSU social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. You can keep up-to-date with their work and find out how to get in contact with them via our Officers webpage.

We're looking forward to welcoming all of you back in September for a much more positive year when it comes to student group activity! Your committee members have completed Part One of Student Group Training as they acquire the tools and knowledge they need to hit the ground running when we return in September.
