Please read the below information about how to access and use our rooms safely, particularly as the Edge is still being used as a Covid-19 test centre (handy for when you've got a room booked!).

How to access rehearsal rooms:

  • Access to Edge rooms is via the side door to the left of the main entrance. Please use the hand sanitiser at the bottom of the stairs
  • Go straight up the stairs to the practice rooms on Level 2. Please let us know when you book if you will need to access via the lift
  • Library card access to the room you have booked will be automatically granted for your booking slot.  
  • If library card access does not work, please knock on the office door and a member of staff can let you into your room. This is a new system so if you have persistent problems with this please let us know via the SU Arts email
  • You must wear a mask while in the building until you are in your individual room

How to use the room: 

  • Please use the cleaning products in the room to disinfect surfaces and the door handle at the start AND at the end of your practice slot
  • Be mindful of others and leave the room tidy, taking any rubbish with you. 
  • Please leave at your scheduled time – we need to leave a 30-minute gap between all practices to allow the room to ventilate

When exiting the building: 

  • Leave via the route you came in and do not go through the foyer
  • Wear a mask
