Staff Life Activities and Groups

Face-to-face groups were suspended in 2020 due to the pandemic and social distancing rules. Some groups remained online only while others moved back to in-person meet ups or a mixed offer. We'll update the pages of individual groups as this happens and note it in the timetable below.  See the timetable below and the individual pages linked for more information.

Sports and fitness groups: we're working with the Sports Park on recommencing staff/ PGR activities which were previously run through the Staff Life Plus membership scheme. Look out for news in the Weekly Bulletin and PGR newsletter for their new membership offer.

All University of Exeter colleagues (current, temporary, visiting and retired) and PGRs from any of our campuses, are welcome to participate in the groups and activities listed on these pages. 

We're also happy to add existing/ new staff-led groups which don't currently feature here so get in touch via our email if you would like your group added.
