The post stated food will not be served in Courtyard today and will close at 10pm this evening for "a major program of repair" by the University of York.

Courtyard will also be closed for the full day tomorrow whilst works are undertaken to resolve the flooding issue.

YUSU are aiming to reopen Courtyard again 12 noon on Wednesday 29th October, subject to all works going as planned.
