Temporary Closure Information - Covid-19
The University of Liverpool are currently working on plans to reopen campus in preparation for the new 20/21 academic year. The size and scale of their University community means they must plan for a phased return, carried out in a pragmatic way.
Their plan is based on prioritisation, the first priority being the re-introduction of staff who require access to laboratories to undertake their research. This will be followed by teaching buildings, spaces and accommodation for students.
All buildings which reopen will have "Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2020" certificates and thus will have restrictions.
The implications vary building by building and this detail is still emerging. With this in mind, they have taken the decision to only accept bookings for events taking place on campus from Spring 2021 onward.
Their absolute priority remains the safety of the entire University community and ensuring the campus is a welcoming place to live, work, visit and study.
