TUNE IN

Etikett Radio, our very own student-run radio station, is currently on hiatus while we undergo redevelopment of the station. Although the site is still live, we're not broadcasting at the moment. We're looking forward to next year's programmme launching in early 2024! See you then, for sounds from our community.
