Information for students

In the event of snow or other adverse weather conditions, you are expected to attend your lectures and any exams as normal unless advised otherwise by the University.

Even when the usual forms of transport are unavailable, you should make every reasonable effort to reach the University campus/ your exam venue using alternative means, provided it is safe for you to do so.

If you do make every effort to reach your exam and are still unable to attend due to snow, you will need to contact the Exams Team and your department immediately. You can contact the Exams Team via the Student Administration service by phoning +44 114 222 1288.

There is more information on what to do if you miss an exam on the Exams webpages.

Should weather conditions be severe and dangerous, the University may close and this page will be updated to reflect that.
