Guidance on the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak


Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, our buildings are closed until further notice.

We want to reassure everyone that classes will still be delivered online for our students and we will continue to keep services running through online contact methods where we can.

Our Residences will remain open, but students are advised to travel home, if they are able to do so safely. We will continue to support students who have to stay in residences.

As and when there are further changes, we will distribute updates as soon as possible. Staff and students are requested to monitor their email accounts, and check  this web page, Facebook and Twitter. University-wide information can be found at

Our Climbing Centre and Academy of Sport and Wellbeing are also closed, although everyone can access online fitness classes via the ASW Facebook page

Our lecturing staff are not in during the two-week college holiday period so will respond on their return. 

For student online learning support, please see our guidance.

For more information on the suspension of face-to-face teaching, please see our news page.

For 24/7 digital mental health support, please see more information about Big White Wall.
