Meet the team

Study Happy Ambassadors

Our students assistants

Our Study Happy Ambassadors know exactly what it's like to be studying at Warwick (as opposed to the staff who may not have been students for *ahem* quite some time).

They're not only able to empathise with the stress of deadlines and the struggles of achieving a study/life balance but can also offer you support and guidance based on their own experience.

They're here to help you feel part of the community.


Kirby the penguin, the Study Happy mascot

Introducing the Study Happy mascot. Look out for me around the Library and Study Spaces, my colleagues won't be far away.

Ask one of the team if you'd like a stress Kirby to take home, decorate, or take on your travels.

Keep us posted on your adventures with #KirbysTravels.
