The University campus remains closed until further notice.  

I know that every member of staff is working hard to continue to support our students through online teaching, assessment and online student support services, and to keep our business operations functioning. A very small number of staff will continue working on campus to maintain critical University services. Thank you to everyone for meeting this challenging situation with such professionalism.   

At the moment we do not know how long this phase of the Government’s management of the situation will continue. Updates will be sent to your University email or by text message to the number you have previously supplied, when we have further information.

I hope you and your family stay healthy and thank you for your continued understanding.

Professor Bob Cryan
