Support and services open on campus to those staying in London over the winter break


Are you staying in London over the winter break?

If you’re planning on staying in London for the winter break and not travelling home (i.e. staying in your halls of residence or private accommodation), we want to make sure that you get all the support you might need to stay well. Let us know by completing this quick sign-up form and we’ll be in touch about support, useful information and community activities that will help you stay well and connected over this period.

Campus still open from 9 December though the Winter Break

While we’ll be stopping all face-to-face teaching from the 9 December, we remain open with the University’s support services and Students’ Union support and advice services operating as normal up until the University closure period (21 December – 4 January 2021).

    Click and Collect service
    : The Click and Collect service will be suspended over the Christmas period; however we have increased the number of requests that students can place from 5 to 12. These  can be collected prior to the end of term and  will allow students to get hold of more study materials for the Christmas break, if needed.

Kit Hub: the hub will remain fully operational until Friday 11 December and returns will be received until Tuesday 15 December.

Practice rooms: The music practice rooms in Grove B will be fully accessible until Friday 18 December.
