On the Wednesday 18 October Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal and Chancellor of the University of London will be formally opening the Emily Wilding Davison Building. For security reasons, the main building will be closed to general access from 9am to 4.30pm. The Union Shop and Santander Bank will be closed from midday until 4.30. This is a one off, the building won’t close again until Christmas.

If you have urgent enquires on the day the Student Services Centre, Careers & Employability and the Library will be available on the phone to provide assistance. The Library will also be providing 585 alternative study spaces across campus, and 321 study spaces with PC's. Full details of how to contact the teams, access study space and return books can be found on the Library webpages.
There are lots of alternatives outlets to visit while Café on the Square is closed including Crosslands, the Boilerhosue and Grab & Go, in The Hub.
