One Day Off isn’t enough – Southampton Uni Closed Tomorrow
The University have just announced that it will be closed tomorrow on Friday 3rd December.
The University have just announced that it will be closed tomorrow on Friday 3rd December to “to safeguard the personal safety of staff and students.”
There will be no access to University buildings at all tomorrow apart from Halls of Residences. It seems that the trick of saving on heating bills by spending all day in the library won’t work on this occasion.
University staff will still be paid tomorrow, although the Uni “will expect staff to make their best endeavours to work from home”. The Tab is sceptical as to how this might apply to lecturers.
Lectures are due to be rescheduled, so students will not be losing out.
