If you need to order food from the shop for the weekend, please make sure you do so before 4pm on Friday to ensure our team has time to prepare it. To order food from the shop for weekends, please click here.

Food will be dropped off outside your flat door. Staff will knock on your door at delivery times but will not enter the flat so please check outside your flat doors.

You will also need to complete a form to submit any allergens and dietary requirements. To complete the form click here

Self-Catered Halls

The campus shop has an online ordering facility for all students in isolation. If you need to order food please make sure you do so before 4pm to ensure our team has time to prepare it. Retail orders will be delivered between 4pm and 5pm daily.

All food orders will be dropped off outside your flat door. Staff will knock on your door at delivery times but will not enter the flat.

Please remember to add any allergens or dietary requirements to your online order.

Fire Alarms

In the event of a fire alarm you must still evacuate the building as normal. However, we would ask that when you evacuate you remain distanced from other block members and make yourselves known to the responding staff member. Please ensure you are wearing a face covering.

First Aid/Medical Assistance

We will of course continue to provide this for all residents. If you need first aid support please call Glasney Lodge on 01326 253503 and explain to the receptionist that you are in an isolating flat and require assistance. Staff will attend with appropriate PPE.

Laundry

As per Public Health England guidelines you must not leave your flat during the period of isolation. This means that the shared laundry facilities will not be available to you. If you require detergents to enable you to hand wash any clothes, please contact Glasney Lodge and we will arrange for some to be dropped to you.

Should you require a change of bed linen during the isolation period, please email halls.help@fxplus.ac.uk who will supply an emergency bedding pack to be returned at the end of your isolation period.

Maintenance

Only essential works will be carried out in your flat during your isolation period. Please continue to log any issues via halls.help@fxplus.ac.uk and, as usual, we will filter them and attend essential jobs only and pick up the rest when your isolation ends.

Medication

If you require prescriptions during your isolation, please contact your pharmacy and inform them you are self-isolating. They may be able to arrange delivery to Glasney Lodge and we will drop it to your flat.

Rubbish and Recycling

Specific collections have been arranged for your flat at 11am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please place any items for disposal into black bags and place them outside your flat door shortly before 11am on the days listed. We will not be able to recycle any of your items during the isolation period so put everything in black sacks. Please double bag the sacks, ensure they are not overloaded or too heavy and tie them at the top.

They will be collected by our caretaking team and disposed of according to guidelines. If you need more bin bags please email halls.help@fxplus.ac.uk and we’ll drop them to you.

Post

Post and packages will be dropped inside your flat door on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
