  • Library Services

    Completed

    We worked closely with UCL to work towards restarting a service to allow students to begin to borrow books again. From 19 June Library Services have introduced a ‘Click and Collect’ service for books held at the Main and Science Libraries. The Service is be for UCL staff and postgraduate research students in the first instance. Books can be requested via Explore and collected from the Portico door at the Main Library.

    The first batch of books were made available on 24 June. A complementary service to scan and email journal articles and book chapters on request is also being scoped, provisionally for introduction in July.

    You can keep up to date with progress and the latest news on the Library Services website.

  • Plans for next academic year and reopening campus

    Working on it

    On 1 June UCL announced plans to be open and ready to teach for September 2020, with campus being open for in-person activity and small group teaching and larger group teaching taking place online.

    We’re confident that UCL’s approach will be aided by the expertise of its academic community, as well as guidance from the UK Government.

    We’re working every day to make sure UCL delivers what’s best for students. Our priority is to ensure that all students, regardless of where they’re studying or how they’re studying, receive a high-quality and equitable experience. We’ll continue to represent students on every decision UCL makes about next year.

  • Accommodation Costs for September 2020

    Working on it

    Update August: UCL have committed to re-instating the scheme, and the criteria is currently being looked at. More information can be found here.

    Update June: UCL suspended their Guarantor Scheme for new applications in relation to 2020-21. We are working to get UCL to reconsider this decision and reinstating the Guarantor Scheme. 

    UCL Accommodation are currently following Public Health England guidance on issuing rooms for September 2020 by only issuing en-suite rooms to ensure that students can safely self-isolate if required to. UCL Accommodation have informed new students that even if it's more expensive than the room they requested, they will be issued an en-suite room and be expected to pay the additional cost. 

    We're currently talking to the Provost and UCL Accommodation about supporting students who will be impacted financially by this decision.
