Meet Mila


For those of you missing their canine buddies at home or who simply want to relax and escape from the books for 10 minutes we've enlisted the help of Mila the Labradoodle. We love her and we're sure you will too.

Go to the Students' Union reception to find out where Mila is on the day.

Mila can meet 10 students at a time. We expect plenty of you will to come see her so if it's busy you may have to hang around for a little while.
