Covid Safe Campus
At Bishop Burton College and University Centre, our number one priority is the safety of our students and staff.
We have developed and implemented many new safety procedures and measures to make sure our campuses are as safe as possible during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Please take the time to read our COVID-Safe Induction Brief so you are aware of the measures we have put in place that everyone must follow on campus and travelling to Bishop Burton.
Travelling to the College
If you use public transport, or take one of the Bishop Burton College buses to travel to and from the College, you must follow current government guidance. Face masks should be worn on transport and hands must be at least sanitised on arrival to the College. More information can be found here.
If you can get to college by another means, for example cycling or a lift from parents, these options should be considered.
If you are traveling to the campus via car, please enter the campus via the main entrance (accessed via the A1079) and park in car park 1.
Moving Around the Campus
To manage the flow of bodies inside the campus, we have introduced a one-way system inside all buildings. Clear markings have been put in place around campus buildings - please follow the one-way system where possible and follow social distancing rules to keep apart from other students and staff members.
As well as hand washing facilities in the toilets, we have installed many hand sanitiser dispensers around the campus, please take advantage of these. We advise you sanitise before entering a room and when leaving.
Track and Trace
To ensure the safety of all staff and students, we will be adhering to the government’s Track and Trace principles. Find out more.
We are now operating a cashless campus, therefore all payments for clothing, merchandise, trips etc. will need to be completed through our online shop.
We will not be accepting cash payments in any of our food outlets – payment will need to be made by bank card. For those students without a bank account, you can purchase a £10 Food Card Top Up from our online shop.
Food and Drink
Water machines and vending machines will be operating, we advise that people bring their own reusable water bottles to college, otherwise you will have to ask for a plastic cup and dispose of it appropriately to avoid anyone touching it.
Bishop's Table and the Meadows will be the only food outlets open. For students who are on site throughout the weekends and evenings, you will have to order through the pre-booking system for cooked food.
From September, we will be delivering a blended teaching provision to limit the number of students onsite at any given time. This is to ensure you can be onsite to complete practical teaching and learning safely. The remote learning day may include online lectures, group work or 1:1 tutorials, for which you will need access to a mobile phone/computer/laptop/tablet with internet access.
Before you start, you will be provided with a seating plan detailing where you should sit in the classroom. When entering the classroom, you should enter one at a time and go directly to your allocated place.
Learning Resource Centre
The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) will be open and available for you to use. Please sanitise using the station before entering and upon leaving. When inside the LRC, follow the one-way system. See below to familiarises with the layout of the LRC.
