So we can best protect the health and wellbeing of all members of the Writtle University College community during this period of national lockdown, we will be implementing the following plan, with immediate effect:

  • As we have previously announced, we will have moved to online teaching, support and assessment for our FE and HE courses until further notice.  All students will receive detailed and continuous guidance and support from their course teams and others across WUC as we implement our online arrangements.

  • WUC staff will work from home from Tuesday 24th March except those required to deliver essential support to those students unable to leave campus or to maintain business-critical functions, including the care of our animal population.

  • We will continue to provide support for students currently in WUC accommodation who are unable to return home and remain on campus.

  • All university buildings across all campuses will be closed , with the exception of:​

    • Student accommodation required to house remaining students 

    • The Garden Room/Thyme Out (with hours as communicated to residents via email)

    • The HE Hub (from 8am – 6pm)

    • Departments and facilities essential to maintaining business-critical functions 

  • Students living off campus are required to work remotely. If you are working for us on our farm or equine campus or have a horse at livery you may travel to attend to those duties as guided by the relevant manager. These are considered to be essential services in place to protect the welfare of our animals.
