Health and safety information for visitors


We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our colleagues, learners, visitors and contractors. However brief your visit to our campus might be, we want to ensure your time with us is a safe one.

Your host should be your first point of contact for any queries you may have. Alternatively, you can visit the concierge desk in the Student Centre.

Health and safety is everyone's responsibility
