Safe Community Charter in Study Spaces

You will have signed up to the Safe Community Charter as part of your induction and return to campus. The Safe Community Charter in Study Spaces document outlines what this means in study spaces.

By using the study spaces you understand your personal commitments when using these facilities and what the university commitments are as set out in the Safe Community Charter in Study Spaces.

Cleaning study desks

As a result of Covid-19 you will need to clean your study space before you sit down using the cleaning materials provided. These cleaning materials are in line with our Green Restart principles.

There are cleaning stations in all study spaces which contain cleaning spray and blue roll. To clean your study space:

  • at the cleaning station, spray the cleaning fluid onto some blue roll
  • thoroughly wipe down with the blue roll before touching or using the desk
  • if there is a plastic or wipeable chair, wipe down the armrest and seat back with blue roll
  • if your desk space has a power socket, carefully wipe the switch with the blue roll
  • if your study space has a computer wipe the keyboard, mouse and any switch with the blue roll
  • the blue roll can be disposed of in the bin by the cleaning station when you leave

All study spaces are cleaned overnight by our professional cleaning team and there will be cleaning throughout the day of high frequency touchpoints such as door handles and light switches.
