Staff benefits and wellbeing update

13 Oct 2021

Make use of all your saving opportunities and the latest wellbeing updates

We are all trying to watch the pennies at this time of year so remember to make use of all your saving opportunities! 


All the University’s local discounts can be found on the Vivup platform. Once registered go to “local benefits” on the blue lifestyle benefits column to access your old favourites.

You can make 15% savings with leading outdoor and fitness suppliers Runners Need, Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock. Simply use the University’s unique staff code.

UniDiscounts highlights this week:


You are now able to access leading national lifestyle savings from our health and wellbeing partner Vivup. To access these savings, you must register on - you can simply register with your University or personal email address. You will need to enter your employee/payroll number when registering - you can find this on your payslip online or staff ID card.

Leading high street offers include:

  • John Lewis
  • Marks & Spencer
  • Leading supermarkets: Sainsbury, Morrisons, Tesco and Asda
  • Currys PC World

The majority of these are instant digital codes that make it easy for you use in store and online. The in-store discounts can be presented in store on a phone screen to be scanned at the checkout or simply printed. Always check the T&Cs.


The University has arranged a Menopause awareness course to coincide with World Menopause Day on 18 October at 1:30pm. The five minute video below from Henpicked shares facts and figures on the menopause that are helpful for those living with the menopause and line managers who are trying to be supportive.
