COVID-19 Returning to College Announcement

Hi, current and future members of University College! Life at college is no doubt going to be very different this year, for both staff and students. We want you to feel comfortable at college and be able to approach us with any queries/worries/ideas.

UPDATE 22/09/2020: As you will have seen from government guidance, pubs and restaurants will be closing at 10pm and you must not gather in groups of more than 6. As Durham is in a local lockdown, you must NOT mix with anybody from outside your household. There will be serious sanctions if you do not follow these rules.

Please check this announcement section for more up to date announcements as they arise. Lauren Shields, the Services Manager, is responsible for maintaining this website so please email with any questions about the COVID announcements.
