Work begins on temporary hubs

September 8th, 2020

Work is beginning on number of temporary hubs to provide more undercover space on campus.

A number of temporary structures are being installed across University Park, Jubilee Campus, Sutton Bonington and Derby Medical School as part of health and safety measures.

The hubs will offer students alternative places to go in between face-to-face learning and on-campus activities. By increasing the amount of space available we can ensure students can adhere to social distancing guidelines, avoiding large numbers of people in any one area. The hubs will also offer an extension to catering facilities and act as overflow dining halls with some of them being bookable for specific activities.

Many of the hubs will have power points,  a small amount of furniture- and access to WiFi. Like other buildings around campus there will be signs in the hubs advising users on health and safety measures, such as wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing and hygiene practice.

Work to install the hubs will begin this week, with some disruption to car parking spaces- see below.

The hubs will be installed at the following locations:

University Park Campus

  • George Green Quad
  • Coates Road ( between L2 and L3)
  • Trent East Car Park
  • Portland Patio
