Pride events, marches and festivals have been cancelled to reduce the risk of a second wave of coronavirus cases. Anxious to make sure LGBT+ students, staff and allies could still take part in Pride this year, Warwick SU has thrown its support behind Campus Pride, a summer-long online festival of events and challenges being organised by a coalition of UK students unions.
Members of the Warwick community who are living on campus during lockdown have the opportunity to help survey wildlife for a biodiversity project.

Nine free workshops and events are being hosted by Warwick researchers from 2 – 9 November 2019 as part of the UK-wide ESRC Festival of Social Science.
