All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site
