The Guild’s current response
Following the recent announcement by the UK Government on 31st October regarding a second national lockdown, the Guild of Students would like to clarify our current position regarding Guild activity and events.
Although the UK is currently in another lockdown, the Government announced that all universities will remain open. We have followed advice set out by the Department of Education, along with guidance from the University.
What does this mean?
The Guild building remains open from 9am until 5pm, Monday to Friday, unless guidance from the Government or the University, changes. Our reception will be staffed throughout this time, and the seating areas (ground floor) and our study space (first floor) are available for students to use. Joe's Bar, in accordance with Government guidance, has had to close. However, we are hoping to launch a brand new Click and Collect service, shortly.
Guild staff continue to work remotely to support our student community and all Guild services are available via email:
UoB Virtual Neighbourhood
As we move back into lockdown, we’re switching things up and will be using The Virtual Neighbourhood Facebook Group again, to share all the latest information, Officer Updates and student group activity.
But one thing that hasn’t changed since the last lockdown, is that this is still a virtual home from home for the entire UoB community to stay connected. So, watch this space for updates.
