Christmas for many students may be different because it may mean spending the festive period in student accommodation away from loved ones at home. Staying in your University home might feel a bit strange, but don’t worry – it could be a great opportunity to do things a little differently during the festive season. There’s lots of things you can do to get into the festive spirit and here are our tops tips to celebrate Christmas.
Spread festive vibes throughout your student accommodation with seasonal decorations, starting with a Christmas tree. You can even split the cost with your flatmates! Decorating for the festive season doesn’t need to break the bank either. You can get crafty by attending resident Christmas-themed craft workshops.
There are so many amazing events organized by your wonderful halls teams for you to take part in to help you get into the festive spirit, here is the magical City Side Christmas event which included a choir, reindeer, treats and more.
