Campus Opening and Closing times
The University has invested heavily in resources to enhance safety and security on campus. Anybody wishing to enter during restricted access times will have to use their Staff Card or valid Student Matriculation Card at key entrance points.
During Christmas, Easter & public holidays campuses are officially closed. Please see announcements on the Staff Intranet and Student Portal prior to these periods.
It would greatly assist Security if everybody could vacate the premises 30 minutes prior to closing time.
For safety reasons everybody must book in and out of campuses at weekends
