QUEEN ELIZABETH II (1926-2022)
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday 8 September. The date of her State Funeral has been announced as Monday 19 September. This day has been designated as a Bank Holiday and the University will be officially closed, so normal Bank Holiday access arrangements will apply. This means that buildings will only be open to those with swipe card access, while student facilities – apart from those included within the links below – will be closed. All facilities will reopen on Tuesday 20 September.
However, as this day falls on what would have been the first day of Welcome Week, there will be a small student support presence on campus, focused on the Library and Student Hub, ensuring support is available to both new and returning students if needed.
Below are more details of how the University is responding to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
