Following government information, a select number of students who need essential practical experience to undertake essential practical activities have now returned to campus, with more students returning this week. All other students will continue with remote online learning until at least 12 April as we await the government’s next review by the end of Easter. A small number of students will also return to campus in the week of 12 April. If you have not been told to return to campus, you must continue to study from home until told otherwise. We will provide an update on the reopening of the HUBS as soon as we can.
Following government guidance, the HUBS is closed until further notice. However, you can still access our services and activities online, as we have made sure that you have plenty of ways to access our services and make friends virtually. You can contact our staff and officers and get involved in our fun online activities to make sure you’re getting the most out of your time with us. Once the HUBS reopens, you must use the booking systems provided, wear a face covering and follow the one way systems in place to help keep everyone safe.
As the HUBS is now closed until further notice, you will not be able to book a face to face appointment with any of our staff. However, all of our services are fully accessible online and you can make a pre-bookable online appointment with the department of your choice. Your Student Officer Team are also here to support you during these difficult times and are also all offering pre-bookable online appointments below.
Due to the latest government guidelines, HiDEOUT is now closed until further notice. For more information on how to contact us during this time, click here.
The University is open, with access to bookable study spaces, libraries and oncampus support for those of you who are now able to return to campus and who do not have access to study space where you live. Students who have been experiencing in-person teaching on campus since January can continue to do so. In-person teaching and learning for undergraduate and postgraduate students who are studying practical or practice-based (including creative arts) subjects and require specialist equipment and facilities has now resumed. All other students will continue with remote online learning until at least 12 April as we await the government’s next review by the end of Easter. Your course teams will be in direct contact with you to confirm full details of what this will mean for you individually – please check your Blackboard sites regularly.
Before you return to campus for the first time – whether for teaching and practical activities or to use the libraries or study spaces – you should take two Covid tests, three days’ apart, and continue to take regular tests thereafter.
