University open as normal today (Tuesday)

The University of Bath will open as normal on Tuesday 22 January.  There has been a small amount of snow on campus overnight but roads are clear and the bus companies are expecting to run a normal service. In the event that we had to close early a  further communication will be posted by 11am in relation to the 1.30pm exams; and 2.30pm in relation to the 5pm exams.

All examinations for the remainder of this week have been put back by 30 minutes from their originally-scheduled start-times (e.g. 9.30am exams to 10am, 1pm to 1.30pm and 4.30pm to 5pm).  The new date for exams due to take place on Friday 18 January will be announced later this week.

Some surfaces remain 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.

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 University’s guidance on staff attendance during severe weather conditions is available on the University website.  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. The Nursery and Sports Training Village will, similarly, be open.

Further snow is forecast for later on Tuesday.  An announcement will be posted on the University website by 7.30am on Wednesday morning 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.
