Festive events at the University of Brighton

Christmas Meal Kit

Seeing friends and family during the Christmas vacation is something that makes it a special time. We realise this will not be a possibility for some people this year so to help make it feel more festive the university is providing every student that remains in Brighton or Eastbourne with a free Christmas meal kit. This includes ingredients to make a Christmas meal, a recipe card plus a sweet treat. If you would like to order the free Christmas meal kit please email resilife@brighton.ac.uk.
