In light of the ongoing developments with Coronavirus, or COVID-19, the university has moved to protect the health and well-being of its students and staff with a string of social distancing measures to hopefully restrict the spread of the virus. We have suspended all teaching after today (17 March) with online teaching commencing 23 March. Our libraries and workshops remain open as we know our students may wish to create pieces of work for their degrees. We are also cancelling all large gatherings across our four campuses – these include Open and Applicant Days, Student Union events, guest lectures etc – until further notice. Home working for our staff, where possible, will be enacted in the coming days. Please visit our regularly updated alerts page – www.uca.ac.uk/alerts - for the latest advice. To all of our students and staff, and to everyone affected by this virus – we wish you well. Stay safe, wash your hands, look out for one another, be kind and if you can, keep creating.
