» Moving Out? Tidy

From 29th May 2017, Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC in partnership with USW are placing two recycling collection points in Treforest.

These collection points will give students moving out of Treforest the opportunity to drop off any reusable items. These items can then be given to fellow students and local charities. Any item which cannot be reused will be recycled.

Items we would like to see you bring to the collection points are

  • Electrical items
  • Books
  • Clothing
  • Kitchen ware
  • DVDs CDs
  • Textiles

If you have anything that you think would be useful for somebody, then bring it along with you.

The collection points will be situated

  • Outside the accommodations office on the Treforest campus.
  • Near the Brook Street entrance to the University.

Opening times will be advertised at the collection points.

The collection points will be available until 29th June 2017.

» Newport security alert: update

You’ll be aware that there was a security alert in Newport on Thursday afternoon. As part of this, at the request of Gwent Police, the University took initial protective measures, then evacuated the Newport City Campus.

The University would like to thank all of the staff and students who cooperated so calmly.

We continue to keep our security levels and procedures under review, being vigilant with advice from the police and relevant authorities. Your safety is always our first priority in the context of USW being an open and inclusive university community.

It’s also worth remembering that in any incident you can find the latest information and advice on the University’s social media feeds.

» Programme on OCD seeks participants

We have been contacted by a TV production company looking for people aged 18 – 30 who have OCD and would be willing to take part in a TV programme about living with the condition.

Crackit Productions are making a new two part series following the impact of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder on people aged between 18 and 30 years old. The series aims to demystify this condition and reflect the reality of how people live with this disorder on a day to day basis.

The production company are looking for people who have OCD (or believe they might have OCD) to take part in the show. They say that contributors will be supported throughout the filming and aftercare will be provided for people who take part in the final aired programme. However if you are considering this, we would advise you to think carefully before agreeing to participate.
