The Guild’s current response
As the Government has announced an end to most restrictions, and following the University's approach to deliver in-person learning on campus wherever possible, your Guild is 'open for business'! Our Guild building is open from 8am until 10pm, and our services are all offered in person once again. You'll be able to book an appointment with one of our advisors, visit our Officer team, join student groups, or eat, drink and relax in Joe's Bar, once more.
We of course recognise that some of our students may still feel like this is a step too far, so you can still access the majority of our services virtually, should you wish. You'll find more details of how to access these virtual services, below.
How we're keeping you safe
Lateral Flow Testing
We would encourage all students to follow the University's guidance and test themselves regularly for signs of Covid-19. You can pick up free lateral flow tests whenever you're on campus. If you live in University accommodation, you will have easy access to testing kits in your halls. Alternatively, testing kits are readily available online via the NHS.
FREE Covid Vaccinations
The University will be holding dedicated vaccination centres on campus, after Welcome Week. On Monday 4th October, your Guild car park will play host to a special vaccination centre. On Tuesday 5th October you'll be able to get vaccinated with a Pfizer vaccination, in the marquee on the Green Heart. This service is offered on a walk in basis - there's no need to book, just turn up any time between 10am - 4pm.
Although the wearing of face masks is no longer required by law, we would advise you to wear them wherever possible, inside your Guild building and all University buildings, particularly in busy areas.
