Earlier this morning, the Met Office changed the weather warning to red for Dorset and the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole areas. This is for extremely strong winds due to Storm Eunice.
Based on this updated information and in order to prioritise the safety of our staff and students, both Lansdowne and Talbot campuses, along with our Portsmouth site, will close today, Friday 18 February.
Teaching activities will be moved online today, wherever possible. Please check your online timetable for updates.
The wind is due to lessen over the weekend and the Major Incident Group will provide a further update this afternoon. If we need to, we will also post updates on Twitter, Facebook and the BU website. You can also check the BU information line - 01202 968999 - for recorded updates. Please check at least one of these communication channels before setting off in the event of adverse weather.
If you have any queries, please get in touch with AskBU.
