19/03/20 Campus Opening Times, Academic Concerns, Local Community

Good afternoon everyone. We keep closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation at an SU, University, local, and national level – on our end, we have some updates to share with you. Your Officers are hearing your concerns and your questions and every day we bring those questions up to the University. The situation is fast-changing and ever evolving, and it has been incredible to see how many of you are adapting and contributing to these strange new times. We are particularly chuffed at how well our Corona Community Facebook group is growing and seeing so many of you coming together and sharing all you got for this community is really giving us the energy to keep going. 

See below for the full update for today. We hope all of you are keeping well and that the situation is not impacting you too much.  

Love and solidarity, The SU
