The country is currently in Level 5 of the protective measures in response to COVID-19.  The government has indicated that these measures will continue until 31st January and possibly for longer. The implications for the University are as follows:
Work from home where possible:  Staff are asked to work from home if possible.  Staff who need to access the campus should carry a letter of permission from HR.

Buildings:  Most of the campus buildings will be closed and on card access.  The John Hume Building will remain open to provide spaces for students who need to study on campus. 

Teaching:  Most teaching has ceased for the inter-semester break.  Any remaining teaching will be remote where possible, with on-campus teaching only where necessary, such as for practical work.
Research students:  Postgraduate research students who have been issued with letters permitting access to the campus can continue to work on campus when necessary.  

Library:  The Library will operate as in November providing a range of services including click and collect and Digital on Demand. For more please see:

Catering:  There will be a limited catering service in the Phoenix restaurant, and food can be bought at the Londis shop.
