University open as normal today (Monday 0700)

The University of Bath will be open as normal today (Monday 21 January).

Estates staff have been busy throughout the weekend clearing roads and paths of snow and ice as far as possible.  Some surfaces will, however, still be slippery/ icy. Staff, students and visitors are advised to take great care when using paths and car parks on campus. Please be alert for slippery, wet floor surfaces in the entrances to buildings.

Examinations scheduled for today will take place.  Examinations previously due to start at 9.30am will now begin at 10.00am, those due to start at 1.00pm will now start at 1.30pm, and those due to start at 4.30pm will now start at 5.00pm.

Snow is not currently forecast for today.  However, in the unlikely event that the weather and traffic conditions deteriorate and it is not possible to run exams scheduled for later today, an announcement will be made by the following times:

  • 11.00am for the 1.30pm exams
  • 2.30pm for the 5.00pm exams

Staff should make every possible effort to attend work in the interests of maintaining a normal service. Those reliant on public transport should use the first available service if there are early morning cancellations.  The bus companies serving the campus are expecting to run a normal service today.

The University’s guidance on staff attendance during severe weather conditions is available here.  Staff who are able to work from home are able to do so with their manager’s permission; staff will otherwise need to take unpaid or annual leave.

Catering and retail outlets will, as far as possible, be open as normal today. The Nursery and Sports Training Village will, similarly, be open.

Further snow is, however, forecast for Tuesday.  All examinations scheduled for Tuesday are therefore now put back by 30 minutes to 10am; 1.30pm and 5pm.  An announcement will be posted on the University website by 7.30am tomorrow (Tuesday) to indicate whether or not the campus will be open and examinations taking place. The University's severe weather helpline (a recorded message) will also be updated on 01225 383200.
