University position

In response to latest Government guidance, we have taken the following steps:

  • All teaching is now taking place remotely, with face-to-face teaching and supervision suspended until further notice.
  • Unless physical access is absolutely essential, all staff must work from home, with managers actively working to support you with this.
  • Accommodation for students on campus remains open with only the essential services needed to support them maintained. All other University buildings are now closed.
