The Bulletin

Frequently asked questions

It is expected that College and Service newsletters will continue for sharing local news. However as the Weekly Bulletin is circulated every week and with a fast turnaround it might prove a more timely way to share news and events. We would hope that the Weekly Bulletin can be used to share news from Colleges and Services across the whole University staff community.

Yes, staff will no longer receive News in Brief.  Students will continue to receive Student News in Brief each month during term time. Back copies of News in Brief can be found online.

Please send us your news at any time in the week prior to publication, and at the very latest by 5pm each Thursday.  The Weekly Bulletin will come out on the following Monday afternoon.
Deadline reminders will be stated in each issue.

The Weekly Bulletin will be sent out at 2pm on Monday afternoons. In vacation time the Weekly Bulletin will be published fortnightly, and when a Bank Holiday occurs the Weekly Bulletin will generally come out on Tuesday.

The best way to share details of your event is to list it on the main University events webpage. The Weekly Bulletin will be linked to this page. The Weekly Bulletin will aim to highlight some events taking place that week and future events that can be booked. If you or your colleagues do not have access to upload events to the list please contact your representative on the Web Team for guidance. 

If your event is particularly strategically important please let the internal communications team know by emailing

The Weekly Bulletin, like most e-newsletters at the University, is created and distributed using an external web system. This makes sure it has the same format for all recipients, allows us to see which stories are popular, and helps us adhere to data protection guidelines. It also helps us deal with the large amount of recipients – more than 4,500 email addresses receive the Weekly Bulletin. However as the list is so large it does take time to roll out, in particular to come through the University’s email server. It is sent in alphabetical order.

Articles need to be as short as possible, ideally around 100 words with a weblink included. Pictures are most welcome and will be sized as a square generally, and your article may be edited to fit size and house style.
