Changes to LABplus for 2020/21

Covid-19 changes

Advance booking

To promote a safe working environment for all students and staff, students are now required to book a workstation, resources and equipment in advance of visiting.

Book your visit and read booking guidance.


LABplus has been divided into 16 workstations allowing two-metre social distancing. Each workstation is clearly numbered and labelled. Chairs that are no longer in use have been taped off and must not be used under any circumstance.

Cleaning stations

Cleaning stations are now located at the entrance and exit of LABplus with hand sanitiser and surface spray. Please ensure that you clean your workstation at the start and end of each visit. Sinks with hand wash are also available.

Face coverings

There is no legal requirement to wear a face covering on campus, although we suggest wearing one in enclosed spaces. As facemasks will be a personal choice, please be considerate, kind and tolerant of what individuals decide.

No food or drink

Food and drink must not be consumed in LABplus due to health and safety within the laboratory.
