Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - Tuesday 17 March

After further discussions with the University today, in line with Government guidance, we have made the decision to implement further social distancing measures.


These include:


1. Closing all catering outlets (Munch, Cafe Piazza and JCs) for the foreseeable future.


All catering outlets will be closed from the end of today (Tuesday 17 March) until further notice.


All LSU Shops will remain open with reduced hours. Please check our website for updated opening hours.


Please contact Storm Hair, Natural Beauty, Manchuhan, Loughborough University Dental Practice, The Medicine Box and Sask Opticians directly for their individual opening hours.


2. ‘Shutting’ the LSU building and limiting access to LSU staff only.


The LSU building will be closed to the public from tomorrow (Wednesday 18 March), with only LSU staff members having access to the building through their maglocks. This measure has been taken to conform to social isolation recommendations.


However, LSU is much more than just a building and our services, sections and departments will be operating as usual thanks to our hard-working and dedicated staff.


We're all still here if you need anything or have any questions, and our reception will be happy to take your call on 01509 635000 if you need to be pointed in the right direction.




We will be reviewing all of the above measures after Easter in line with government guidelines, and are continuing to work closely with the University to remain reactive to the current situation.


Please continue to regularly check the University’s Coronavirus advice and support for further information.


Best wishes,
