A drop-in will allow you to raise your profile with our students and meet potential employees informally by having a stand in our busy student services building.
The relaxed environment lends itself to promoting your organisation to those passing by, as well as those who have already undertaken research and are eager to speak in more depth about your opportunities. These events can be arranged as a one off activity or alternatively, you may wish to schedule in other sessions as part of your visit.
Due to the nature of these events, they are only available in-person.
Autumn Term Bookings 2022 and COVID-19
We anticipate that in-person teaching will be going ahead as planned. Some sessions may be delivered online. Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are considering delivering a Streatham campus (Exeter, Devon) drop-in. Please bear in mind that all physical bookings will still require robust risk assessments and protocols to be followed in order for them to go ahead. They will also be subject to the latest COVID-19 guidance.
Summer Term 2022 and COVID-19
Examinations take place during the summer term and many will be online, resulting in reduced footfalll on campus. Should you still wish to book a drop-in for this term, please be aware that the information outlined above regarding risk assessments, protocols and COVID-19 guidance remains applicable.
Please click on the headings below for more information, including charges.

Drop-ins are located within the Forum building on the Streatham campus, in an area known as ‘The Street’. Click here to view a photo of this space.
The Forum is located at the heart of the campus making it an ideal location for high profile activity. It houses the main library, supermarket, coffee shops, Career Zone, seminar rooms, and a 435 seater auditorium. A busy space, pre-COVID-19 it attracted approximately 6,000 visitors each day, with students of any discipline passing through.
Drop-ins consist of a table and two chairs, an electrical point, Wi-Fi and space for a banner stand.
Most bookings are made for the autumn and spring term (February is typically our busiest period), but drop-ins are held throughout the academic year. Offered Monday – Friday, they can take place anytime between 09:00 - 17:00. Most organisations opt for a 10:30-14:30 or 11:30-15:30 slot but it is flexible and entirely to your choosing. We do, however, recommend that you cover the lunch period to maximise student attendance and ask that your event is booked for a minimum two hours.
Please note the earliest you are able to set up your drop-in is from 08:00.
Drop-ins are advertised via:
- The Career Zone website
- Our internal online events site ‘Handshake’
- Email circular, sent to all Streatham and St Luke’s campus based students (approximately 20,000)
- Via our social media channels.
Where appropriate, the events will also be included in College-based marketing material.
In order to benefit from all the publicity opportunities and get the best attendance, we urge you to book a date with us as early as possible - many employers secure their preferred dates when we first open for bookings (spring, for the upcoming autumn term). As the spring term has increased in popularity resulting in extremely high demand, we strongly recommend booking well before the end of the autumn term to avoid disappointment.
We advise at least 4 weeks notice minimum between booking and the live event.
Autumn Term 2022
Drop-ins start from £150+VAT. Charges include marketing as outlined above and support from our team on the day.
Summer Term 2022
Please be aware that with examinations taking place during the summer term and many being conducted online, we are expecting lower footfall than usual on campus. If you decide to schedule a drop-in during the summer term it will be available free of charge as we continue to reinstate campus activity in light of the COVID-19 impact.
