Please read our update regarding the period of National Mourning and the State Funeral Plans, and university opening hours.
Last week we shared with you the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
During our period of national mourning, it has been announced that we shall be honouring Her Majesty The Queen’s 70 years of reign, and lifetime of dedication to public service, during a state funeral that will be taking place on Monday 19th September, which is to be a public holiday.
With that in mind, and in-line with other bank holidays, The Students' Union will be closed on Monday 19th September.
The university will be operating a reduced service on Monday 19th September, meaning that most services will be closed with the exception of the following:
City campus and Walsall Campus – the Library will be open but at reduced hours. More info can be found here.
ASK@WLV at City campus will be open from 10am to 5pm but the phone lines will be closed. You can still log a call back using this form.
