We are on our way back!
On 17.03.20, we made the difficult decision to close our building and outlets in order to prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. After five long months of no Guild burritos or pictures of our Starbucks in front of the VGM, we are now putting plans in motion to return to campus, with a few changes.
We are working closely with the University and following Government guidance to put new measures in place so we can reopen our doors to you as safely as possible.
Stay up to date with all of our reopening plans for each of our outlets below, and find out more about what to expect when you arrive on campus here.
The table below highlights the staus of services and events. This will be updated regularly.
