Covid Secure Capacity Info

Please note, room capacities shown in the room layout to the left have been calculated following checks conducted by ECS and the Health and Safety team. In all cases, the figure quoted relates to student occupancy only. + 1 is allowed in each room ON TOP of the figure quoted for teaching staff. Capacity signs, displayed on doors indicate this.


For 2021/22 teaching we will revert back to original capacities in most cases, although a small number of rooms will either not be used, or used at reduced capacity. All rooms have been fully audited for Covid Security by experts from Safety Services.
