Operational hours

Clock Image Campus Support Officers are available between the hours of 6.00am - 9.50pm Monday to Thursday and 6.00am - 8.50pm on ‎Friday. CSOs are also available on campus at the weekend, in term time only.

 

 

Opening and locking buildings

Image of Queen St. Studio All buildings, on the Queensgate Campus, have a number of access/exit routes which are unlocked at 6.00am Monday to Friday or as requested by the School or Department and remain open during normal daytime hours. However, to help increase the safety of staff and students, CSOs lock all "secondary" external doors at 6.00pm - access to /exit from buildings after this time is restricted to the "primary" (main) door. Primary doors are locked, again by CSO's, between 9.00pm and 9.40pm Monday - Thursday and 8.00pm - 8.40pm on Friday

Staff wanting to work outside these hours should refer to the staff handbook outlining the procedures for "out of hours lone working".

If you have any requests regarding changes to this routine please contact your School or Service Administrator who in turn will contact the Estates Helpdesk who will make the necessary arrangements.
