While many staff and students are still working remotely, the process of reopening a small number of buildings, with restrictions, to limited numbers of visitors has begun. Please check the website for the particular Department/Faculty, museum, library or other facility you wish to visit before leaving home.

Please note any restrictions and be aware that some buildings and facilities are operating online booking to manage visitor numbers, so may not be open on a drop-in basis.
