General Information

Building Opening Times
The buildings are open from 9am on weekdays. We ask students not to arrive before this time unless by prior arrangement. Groups and students are asked to leave the building by 10pm during the week.

Weekend opening is made by special arrangement.

Settlement Opening
The Settlement mainly follows the academic calendar. Courses generally run for 10 or 12 weeks; 5 or 6 weeks for short courses.

We are open during half-terms for any classes or groups that wish to meet plus workshops but the office may not be open full time. The Settlement will be closed for specific weeks during the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays. Please see term dates for details.

Refreshments of tea, coffee, sweets and biscuits are available from Canteen staff in the Common Room on some weekday mornings. At other times, students may serve themselves from the kitchen.

Mobile Phones
The use of mobile phones is not permitted during classes and meetings, therefore we ask
that they are turned off during these times.

Car Parking
There is free parking along the side and to the rear of the buildings. At busy times it may still be difficult to find a space. If you need to double park, notices are available in each classroom for you to display in your car. We would recommend that where possible
students lift share to ease the pressure on car parking space.

Additional parking is available at the Open Air Swimming Pool on Norton Way North (5 minutes walk) or the Bowling and Tennis Court car park on Icknield Way (3 minutes walk).

It is important that students and members respect the Tutor, Disabled and Staff parking
spaces. Failure to do so may result in being no longer permitted to park on the premises.
