UCL COVID-19 building update

Please find information relating to UCL buildings during the COVID-19 outbreak

In the light of the Government announcement on lockdown, all staff who do not need to be on campus should remain at home – in line with current government guidance.  

All UCL’s buildings will be closed, incluing the Student Centre and libraries. A very small number of buildings will only be opened in exceptional circumstances. These include UCL Accommodation halls, and where essential work is taking place to support the national effort to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Bidborough House is accessible to a small number of staff who have been authorised by their senior managers to use the building. UCL staff wishing to confirm the status of their buildings, should contact their department or faculty Director of Operations.

Anyone still using any building or space on campus should be adhering to social distancing and hygiene guidance to safeguard themselves and others.

Before you leave

It is your responsibility to ensure that you make your work space at UCL safe and secure prior to extending remote working. The considerations should be similar to those at Christmas or Easter shutdown:

  • Switching off all non-essential equipment and making it safe,
  • securing the building and
  • clearing fridges and removing food and milk, for example.

The safety and security of your offices and buildings remains a really important consideration.
