Sleet and light snow is forecast for this week.

We are keeping the forecast under review and, if weather conditions deteriorate significantly, we will post a further communication using the channels below. As usual, we will try to keep retail and catering outlets open.

In the event of a closure of campus, we will post updates in the following places: - University website, staff and student homepage

  • University Facebook and Twitter accounts

  • CallMy App (see here for details of how to sign up)

  • Severe weather phone line (01225 383200).

In the event of snow and sleet, many surfaces, including stairways, will be wet and slippery. Our Estates team will be making every effort to grit and prepare surfaces, but please take care when walking around campus. Health and Safety advice is:

  • Walk – don’t run. Wear non-slip footwear. Allow more time for your journey, just as you would if driving

  • Try to leave hands free to aid balance and protect against falls

  • Stick to footpaths and avoid steep banks and inclines

  • Take care when walking or cycling up and down hills.
