Following yesterday’s announcement from the Government, Lincolnshire is to be placed into Tier 3 of COVID-19 restrictions from Wednesday 2nd Dec. Below is an update of how this effects the Students’ Union and how students can still access our services at this time:
Towers, The Swan, The Barge, and The Engine Shed will all remain closed. The Line Up and Campus Drop will also be closed from Sunday 29th November onwards. Updates on when the venues will re-open will be made following future changes in guidelines.
Although, we are not able to open our venues for the rest of this term, we are still here to support, represent and provide opportunities for all students.
Advice Centre: The Advice Centre will continue to operate remotely until the 16th December, offering professional, impartial and independent advice on housing, academic, finance and wellbeing issues. As well as offering advice, our advisors are still able to attend virtual meetings with the University, with you.

After the 16th Dec, please refer to this page for the advice and wellbeing services that are available to you over the Christmas period. The SU Advice Centre will be back working remotely from the 3rd January.
