From last term, two printers have been placed in The Study with free access and printing for students. You only need to download the Printt app and make an account then use it for all your printing needs by uploading your files on it to print via bluetooth.
There are two celebratory evenings taking place in RUSU to give out awards for nominated societies, student media and volunteering on the 16th April and sports on the 17th April. Tickets are now available to purchase, which include dinner and some drinks for the event. More information here.
