University Cribs, the student property search engine, is going to host a stress relief day for students at Bristol Students’ Union on Thursday 4th May. The event will run between 12-3pm in the Carpenter Room.
Spring is a stressful time for students as it is jam-packed with revision, dissertation deadlines and exams. That’s why University Cribs is bringing an army of the cutest puppies to Bristol for a day of stress-relieving procrastination. It is scientifically proven that even a brief encounter with puppies can reduce stress levels and provide health and wellbeing advantages.
University Cribs have previously ran the event at Cardiff University, the three campuses of the University of West England in Bristol and at Swansea University. Students loved the events that were all oversubscribed, one student said “It’s the best idea ever! The puppies are adorable and so good for relieving stress as we have lots of deadlines at the moment”.
The day will be aimed at reducing stress for Bristol students during the exam period. The event is entirely free and students have pre-registered slots to sit with the puppies in their own private pens with bean bags, toys and fairy lights.
University can be challenging and stressful, especially during exams so the company chose to put the event on in aid of the mental health charity ‘Mind’, who offer help and advice to empower people that experience mental health problems. Student Mind offers students support to help overcome mental health issues and make university life easier and more enjoyable.
The day is also used to inform students of another method of stress relief: using universitycribs.co.uk for their house hunt! University Cribs is a student property search engine that simplifies the search for university accommodation. They feature properties from all the favourite halls providers and letting agents in every major university city on our site, creating a one-stop-shop for student property needs.
University Cribs has grown rapidly since its launch in October and is now working with over 150 letting agents and accommodation providers around the UK. The start-up business is about to enter a second round of funding to further its ambitious growth plans.
The puppy room at Bristol SU is also a part of the Mind Your Head programme of events.
