Impact on Campus

Campus Estate are constantly looking to improve campus facilities and grounds through routine maintenance and planned refurbishment, as well as the new infrastructure developments.

Where disruptions are expected, traffic and/or pedestrian management will be in place, spaces will be cordoned off and notice will be provided to users. Sometimes classes or group sessions may need to be relocated or postponed. Where classes or lectures are impacted, students and staff will be advised by the University's Timetabling team. Below is a list of current impacts on campus from our current construction and refurbishment projects.

For more detailed information please visit the Construction on Campus page. For impacts caused by the operations and maintenance team performing works in existing buildings on campus, visit the Campus Estate Service Portal (for UC staff only).
