From 4 January

The Centre is now open for walk-in visitors if there is space available. For the comfort and wellbeing of our visitors, we have reduced the usual number of workstations to four and separated them to give at least a one metre distance between computers. Each space will be cleaned between visitors.

During your visit

  • Please use the hand sanitizer when you first arrive.
  • Please wear a face-covering, if you are able to, at all times when you are in the Centre, either to do research or to attend an event.
  • As this is an indoor space, please be respectful of other people’s personal space and maintain social distancing.

We recognise that visiting the socially-distanced Research Centre will place many more restrictions on visitors than usual. We are sorry about this and hope you will be patient with us at this time.

If you, or anyone at home, has COVID-19 coronavirus symptoms, or is self-isolating, please do not visit us.
