College? COVID-19 ?status and response? 

  • National lockdown: The Prime Minister has made it clear that universities will remain open during the new national lockdown. The lockdown starts on Thursday 5 November and ends on Wednesday 2 December 2020. 
  • Campus status: Research and teaching continues on our campuses throughout the lockdown. Only students and staff required to be on our campuses should visit. Staff who can work from home should continue to do so.  On-campus teaching will be suspended by 9 December at the latest to facilitate students’ end-of-term travel arrangements once the lockdown has ended.
