Pause

It's time to pause.

From 25-29 March, we're giving you the chance to pause. Take a break from your studies, deadlines and revision and make some time for yourself.

We're hosting a week of events to help you de-stress, including a self-care session, zine workshop, drop-in pillow cinema, chill-out yurt and more.

The FXU drop-in chill-out yurt can be found on the grass area outside the Penryn Campus shop. You can drop in any time 9am-5pm to take a break and grab some tea and biscuits, although there are some specific sessions built in to the calendar as below.
