Ugli Xmas Party

Ugli Xmas Party

And all through the campus, not a creature seemed to be stirring. But wait - as we crept further in, the hallways filled with the sweet smell of mulled wine, and the soft subtle notes of a christmas tune, as it slowly danced through the corridors. Our frozen insides warmed as we entered the Big room, greeted by tinsel and a snow globe alight. The room was bouncing with Ugli party delight! A music mixer, an Elodie elf look alike, our very own Sexy Santa offered his lap all night, have you been naughty or have you been nice?  It was ...

Creative funk?

Creative funk?

We've all hit that wall before...you know the one that suddenly appears in the middle of that really big project you've been working on. The one that is just dying for that truly awesome idea that's hiding in your subconscious but suddenly hindered by blankness? Writers call it writer's block...musicians call it... Well, I don't know...the Shakin Stevens? Either way, no matter what your art, here are some fruity activities to get those creative juices flowing again:

1) Ever tried knitting? Neither have we but reading about a topic that you wouldn ...

Did you know that in 1908 White City played host to the Olympics?

What is now BBC's White City building and media village was once home to the 1908 Olympic Stadium. Later renowned for its dog races (post Olympic fever), the stadium spanned 140 acres of land. Originally designed for the Franco-British Exhibition, it accommodated 20 palaces and 120 exhibition buildings. When the torch was passed onto London Rome, the stadium was then incorporated into the design. Spectacular for its day, it boasted running and cycling tracks, rugby, football and hockey pitches along with a swimming pool-a mini-me in ...

WHAT IF...

WHAT IF...

…you thought about this idea upside down? Go on stand on your head. Or maybe just swap seats with that good-looking girl sitting behind you just to try looking at it from a different perspective. You never know, she might even have a great idea. Worth a try? Give her half of you biscuit and she can’t say no. Great things come from working together. Remember they’re Ugli too. Sharing is caring and all that. It’s one of the perks of being ugli after all. Or as Vanilla Ice said, “stop, collaborate and listen.” Just think about ...

Thrifty Gets Nifty

Every year a typical UK household can produce up to a tonne of waste! The world is running out of space! So what can we do to help minimise this impact and create a more sustainable future?

Recycle & Up-cycle.

Now we’re all familiar with the term recycling, but up-cycling is a fairly new phrase, the origin of which is uncertain, but made popular in the book “Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the way we make things”, by William McDonough & Michael Braungart.  But what is it exactly?

Up-cycling is all about tapping into those creative brainwaves and turning “trash” with little ...

A place to eat, meet and put up our feet!

A place to eat, meet and put up our feet!

The new Ugli Big Room on the ground floor of Block B opened its doors to all Ugli campus members Today. Our newest communal space was buzzing with member's tantalized by the aroma's of freshly baked pastries, coffee and all manner of treats!

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

We’re transforming the old canteen into the new Ugli big Room. A place for members to eat, meet and put up their feet. But before we could begin the transformation, we needed to find a home for all the IT equipment and furniture that was being stored in it’s midst. So what did we do? We opened up the old canteen doors, and invited our members to come and have a rummage and see what they could salvage. The day was a big success, with lots of members getting some great kit for next to nothing, and offering ...

The Ugli Community Builds a Christmas tree

The Ugli Community Builds a Christmas tree

A tree made from beer…that was the goal! Did we do it? Yes we did, and just in time for Christmas! 

The task started out with the challenge of decoding the maths behind the project. 

How big would each tier circle need to be, in order to build a 5-foot tree? 

How many beer cans would need to be contributed to complete the tree? 

With the ingenuity and knowledge of member braniacs, FACT (Fergusson Anderson Composite Technology), the solution was in hand. Presented in an awesome spreadsheet of numbers and calculations, a whopping 298 beers were needed!

The challenge ...
