At Regent's, we encourage our students and staff to explore opportunities to engage with our local community and beyond.
This has resulted in some amazing initiatives that we hope you will enjoy reading about. We very much welcome ideas for collaboration that will support our local community, especially for projects where our students can be involved.
Please do get in touch if you have an idea!
