Being part of the University community outside of your own work or subject area can enhance everyday life. You may find like-minded people who have similar interests, whether these be sport, music, arts, community activities or other activities. Keep an eye on the Events calendar for opportunities to get involved in activities, meet colleagues or fellow students, and attend an open lecture on a wide range of topics and events. There is a wide range of staff social groups to enable you to meet new people and possibly gain new friends.
Keep an eye out for our weekly Hope Bulletin which is emailed every week and has up to date and relevant information concerning the University, upcoming training events, opportunities for development and interesting open lectures.
Foundation hour takes place every Wednesday between 1 pm - 2 pm. Foundation Hour is a unique and celebratory aspect of Liverpool Hope University’s life and community. The University takes time and space to pause and reflect on important issues beyond the curriculum. The issues range from cultural, religious, spiritual, also concentrating on major World news events. It is a unique opportunity to discuss relevant issues and maybe even gain a new insight and perspective on the events encompassing all of our lives today. This offers a brilliant opportunity to meet new people, share new ideas and maybe even make new friends in the process.
Liverpool Hope prides itself on the work done in the community and the World. You can find out more information about the opportunities for volunteering and charity work within Hope and, if you're interested, find out how to get involved.
