Keeping you safe in halls

We have been very busy working behind the scenes to ensure that all the correct health and safety measurements are in place in halls for the autumn term.

These plans includes social distancing, organised food deliveries, bookable bedding and utensil packs and a 24-hour digital social programme.

For more information, please take a look at our current plans.
