Covid-19: Union service update

Wednesday 4 November 2020

Following the government's announcement on Saturday, like many organisations, we need to adapt our services to the guidelines and current circumstances. At the same time, our highest priority remains to continue supporting you during this challenging time and you can rest assured that we will still be available when you need us. 

This is a difficult time for all of us and we're here for you so don't hesitate to reach out. 

The following changes will be implemented this week and we'll keep you up to date of any changes going forward:

Union Shop

Our Union Shop on Sherfield Walkway will close from 5pm (GMT) on Wednesday, 4 November. Our Online Shop will remain open, so you can still order our products online


Our student bar will close from 10pm (GMT) on Wednesday, 4 November. We have considered the option of offering a take-away service; however, unfortunately this will not be financially sustainable. 

Clubs, Societies & Projects activities

Unfortunately, all in person activities after Wednesday, 5 November will be cancelled; however, our CSPs will continue to offer a great range of online activities for you to engage in. Have a look on our What's On page for all virtual activities and events planned.
