We've made changes right across our campuses, including one-way systems, smaller class sizes and enhanced cleaning routines to help keep students, staff and visitors safe on-campus.
New safety points staffed by student ambassadors and facilities staff are here to help navigate the changes on both campuses. These safety teams are the first point of contact for reusable face coverings, advice on safety, and any other questions that may come up when you're on campus.
Our Library and IT facilities are open, and resources can be pre-ordered to make trips to campus a little easier. Our library services, student services and employability teams are also available digitally, and we are encouraging students to use these services to help make the first few weeks easier to navigate.
Our food outlets are cashless using contactless payments whenever possible. Some are takeaway only, and additional seating is available outdoors in sheltered spaces to enjoy breaks in new surroundings.
We expect there to be more queues at times (such as when classes finish, at lunchtime and as we all move around campus) and we're asking people to be patient with staff and each other – and be prepared to queue a little longer than normal. As we get used to things the queues will become shorter and quicker.
