CASA and COVID-19
2 April 2020
In response to the global Covid-19 pandemic, UCL is changing the way it operates. Our top priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors at this challenging moment for our community.
CASA would like to thank students, staff and university colleagues for their resilience, teamwork, creativity and patience in response to this unprecedented situation.
The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, along with departments across UCL, is not conducting any face-to-face teaching. Tutorials, seminars, practicals and lectures are instead being delivered remotely and students are not required to meet in person, either with each other or with their tutors. These measures are planned to continue until the end of Term 3, Friday 12 June.
Students should contact our Teaching & Learning administrators (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they are unsure about how the content of their course is being delivered.
UCL is committed to ensuring that no student is disadvantaged by the outbreak. A lot of work is happening behind the scenes, with a number of policies being implemented – learn more about the changes being made and the support available via the UCL Students web pages.
The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis office at 90 Tottenham Court Road is closed and all our seminars are currently cancelled or postponed until further notice. The Bartlett at 22 Gordon Street and UCL at Here East are also closed (since Friday 20 March), along with the majority of UCL buildings. All workshops on both sites are closed. The only activities now taking place onsite across UCL are research work that is in the immediate national interest.
The majority of our academic and professional services staff are working remotely during this period, but are reachable during their usual working hours – visit our People pages for contact details.
The university-wide Easter closure dates (17:00, 08 April – 09:00, 15 April) will be observed by all staff at The Bartlett. Students are also encouraged to take this time to rest and recover.
Accommodation for Students
Any students who are seeking accommodation will be allocated UCL accommodation where available. Your safety and wellbeing remain our priority and any students in this situation should contact email@example.com
Students are encouraged to get in touch with their Personal Tutor if they need support, while staff can reach out to their colleagues, as well as Care First.
There are excellent resources to help you stay healthy and positive available via UCL Student Support and Wellbeing. As we move into a phase of remote working, please stay in close contact with tutors, friends, peers, and colleagues.
Staff and students should read UCL’s advice about Covid-19, which is updated daily and which CASA will be following.
