All SU events Canceled until after Easter.
With immediate effect, The SU has decided to cancel all SU events until after the Easter vacation to encourage social distancing and minimise the risk for our members, in response to the ongoing and evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).
This approach will be continually reassessed as guidance develops and changes, and applies to both centrally SU-run events and those organised by student groups.
We are aware of how disappointed some of you will be, particularly those who have worked so hard planning and promoting events; naturally we feel the same and this decision has not been taken lightly.
The SU bar will remain open only to served drinks and food throughout normal opening hours, whilst there is sufficient demand and public health advice maintains that it is safe to do so. Heightened hygiene measures and other procedures are already in place.
The SU will continue to carefully monitor the changing situation and will update guidance accordingly. Currently, tickets for Summer Ball remain on sale as the event is after Easter, but this will remain under review. Refunds will be available if we have to cancel the event.
At present The SU is advising student groups to apply social distancing measures in their own social lives and other student group activity according to the World Health Organisation guidance and consider other ways of meeting and being in community with each other.
If you have purchased any tickets for any SU central or student group events coming up before Easter, you will be contacted by the relevant area regarding refunds or potential postponement details. If you are organising any event, trip or tour you will also be contacted by the relevant area for support in how to move forwards.
If you have any questions or need help with anything then please do not hesitate to contact the relevant team at:
The mental and physical wellbeing of students and staff remains our main concern. We are continuing to work with the University during this time, ensuring all actions and decision are made with the University Community in mind. Stay safe, and look after each other.
