Visit us safely

Summer has arrived and after an amazing few months of welcoming you all back to our building, we are now moving into our Summer Opening Times.

Whilst the Guild Garden, Mountford Hall & Courtyard are closed until September while we make some key improvements, if you’re still studying this summer or staying around a little longer, we are open for you to pick up a coffee or crack on with your deadline!

The main Guild Building is open Monday – Friday between 08:00 -18:00 – don’t worry Starbucks is still open for the weekend service. View our outlets opening times below.

Guild Street: Study Space & Seating
As exam season is out of the way we’re swapping the Courtyard for the Guild Street. We’ve brought back the comfy chairs and benches back to the street, bringing pre-COVID Guild vibes back to campus.

Meet your friends for lunch, catch up on some reading or finish that deadline in the comfort of the Guild street.

Want a brew or heat up your leftovers? We have added a microwave and hot water station to Activity Space 4 for you to enjoy!

Face coverings must be worn unless eating and drink and NHS check in is required for entry.

Opening times: 8am - 6pm Monday – Friday - Entrance via Starbucks
Mountford Hall Bar & Guild Terrace
Closed for the summer

The Mountford Hall indoor bar and outdoor Guild Terrace are now closed for the summer whilst we make some key improvements.

Thank you so much to everyone who has visited us since our reopening, we can’t wait to come back bigger and better in September!

See you then.

Guild Garden
Closed for the summer 
After a very busy 5 weeks filled with cocktails and topped fries in the very unpredictable British summertime, the pathways and access to the Guild Garden is getting a much needed facelift.
In order to make the improvements we will be closing the gates to the Guild Garden from 17th May. But don’t worry you can still grab a bev and burrito over the side of our building in the Mountford Hall and our brand new Guild Terrace.
Starbucks is fully open, for the first time since March 2020 you can now sit inside or out to enjoy your caffeine fix. We are operating card payment only so have your contactless, apple pay or old fashioned chip and pin at the ready.

Entrance is in the main Starbucks entrance opposite the VGM.

Opening times: Monday to Friday, 7am-6pm Weekends 9am-4pm
Based in the Reilly Building entrance on University square, you can pop into our Reception  and the team will be happy to help you. They are on hand to answer queries, pick up bus passes, online shop orders and collect plus parcels.

Opening times: 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday. 
Guild & Online Shop
Our Guild Shop remains closed, but you can still update your wardrobe with our University merchandise available exclusively at our online shop. We are currently running a click and collect service only. Order by 15:00 and collect the next day from our Reception.
