24 March - all campuses are now closed

Following the UK government’s guidance, all our campuses are now closed to students and the public. Colleagues must also remain at home unless attendance has been deemed essential by your line manager.

Any colleague who has a critical need to attend campus should contact Andy McGoff, Director of Finance and Operations, who will authorise access as appropriate, taking into account health and safety requirements. Please try and give reasonable notice to allow our Security team to make appropriate arrangements and bear in mind facilities such as lifts will not be operational.

 

Anyone on campus should continue to follow NHS and government guidance – for example, washing hands regularly and staying two metres away from any colleague. Finally, remember to bring your ID card and sign in where requested to guarantee access.
