Summer is here, we’ve got you covered

Sunscreen and take a break


While too much of the sun’s warm rays can be harmful to your skin, the right balance can boost your mood and productivity. Use your lunch break to enjoy a change of scene and fresh air, move more or even escape off campus!

If you decide to make a break for it - feel free to apply sunscreen on your way, even when it’s cloudy.

Sunscreen dispensers (SPF30) are located at the following sites:

  • Hammersmith - Wolfson Building
  • South Kensington‌ - Sherfield Building (South facing wall, Fire assembly point F)
  • South Kensington - Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Intersection of Sherfield Walkway and Dalby Court)
  • South Kensington - Ethos
  • Silwood Park - Hamilton Building

Take a break from your desk

Getting away from your workstation, into the fresh air and incorporating a walk into your day has many health benefits:

  • Helps to prevent the onset of musculoskeletal disorders often caused by prolonged poor posture at your workstation

  • A brisk walk helps to boost your circulation and increases the oxygen supply to all your body cells which will help to improve your energy levels

  • Sun rays stimulate the body to produce Vitamin D that encourages the production of serotonin, which will help to boost your mood and produce feelings of wellbeing

  • Moving away from your workstation at lunchtime will help to reduce stress, anxiety and refresh the mind
