The University campus remains closed until further notice.    

We are making plans to allow access to the campus for some essential activities in due course.  This will be done in line with Government guidelines, to maintain strict social distancing measures and to ensure a safe environment for the very limited number of staff, students and visitors who will be allowed on site. 

In the meantime, please continue to work from home as you have been doing.  Everyone has done an outstanding job of adapting to the new situation we find ourselves in and we must now ensure that the next phase of this journey is as successful.  I know I can count on your support to achieve this.  Thank you.

I hope you and your family remain safe and well.

Professor Bob Cryan
