Please find details of changes to Poole House opening hours and access to the building during this period of construction.
Changes to Poole House opening hours have been made to relocate the overnight computer facilities, previously provided by the Open Access Centre (OAC), to the Sir Michael Cobham Library (SMCL). This means we will be able to provide 24/7 access to the ground floor of SMCL, aligning with the existing offering at Lansdowne Campus. This is part of our Talbot Campus remodelling project and it will be beneficial for our sustainability efforts in reducing our energy consumption on campus, as well as helping to provide an excellent experience for you.
Below is what this means for accessing the building during this period of construction.
Access to Dylan's Bar
This will remain unaffected and specific arrangements have been made for weekends when functions are held.
Active travel facilities
Facilities over the weekend will continue to be available in Christchurch House.
