AIR Lift Out of Order – 8th December 2023, Until Further Notice

The lift in the AIR building is currently out of order. Unfortunately, this means there is no accessible route to the lower floor of AIR and signage is in place. We have contacted our contractor to get this back up and running as soon as possible, and apologise for the inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, please contact the Estates Helpdesk on 01326 255686 or

SoFT Lift Refurbishment – 19th December 2023 – 23rd February 2024

The lift within the School of Film & Television (SoFT) is currently undergoing refurbishment and the project completion date has been extended to the 23rd February 2024, due to complexities relating to the commissioning and testing of the lift.

This means that the lift is out of service for a further week, and the external alternative level access route continues to be in place for the duration of the works.

The alternative external route (via the path alongside the Chapel lecture theatre) to access the lower ground floor of SoFT/Peter Lanyon will be fully signposted by the Estates team. If you have any questions, please contact the Estates Helpdesk on 01326 255686 or

Thanks in advance for your understanding whilst these works take place.

Refurbishment of Link bridge between Tremough House & Annex – 22nd January – 2nd April 2024

Long-term essential maintenance to replace the cladding of the Link Bridge which connects Tremough House and the Annex is underway. This means that noise disturbance is to be expected as our contractors carry out the work. An area outside of the lower ground entrance to Tremough house will also be fenced off for our contractors to store materials, equipment and waste.

The Link Bridge will remain open where possible but is expected to be closed at certain points within the project. The progress of this project and any closures will be dependent on the weather, and communications will be agile to accommodate the changing timeframe. You will be notified of the upcoming closures via our usual disruptions procedure and an alternative route will be signposted by the Estates Team. The current expected closure notices are:

  • Link Bridge Closed – The Tremough House Annex link bridge to Tremough House will be closed Monday 19 – Friday 23 February, between 8:00am to 17:00pm..
  • Works this week will involve noise and the smell of coatings being applied to structural steel.

If you have any questions, please contact the Estates Helpdesk on 01326 255686 or

Lecture Theatre 2, Fox 4 (Falmouth Campus) Temporarily Not in Use – 30th January – 1st March 2024

Lecture Theatre 2, Fox 4 (on Falmouth Campus), will not be in use due to essential roof repairs. We have arranged contractors and our Timetabling team are working hard with our Estates team to limit disruptions to students as they move lectures out of the space whilst the works take place. As part of this, one of the accessible parking spaces outside the Fox building will no longer be available due to the scaffolding tower, which will stand in its place. Please use the alternative accessible parking space, almost directly opposite.
The repairs to the roof are going to entail the use of a liquid roofing system which may emit some strong smells, we will endeavour to ensure windows in the immediate vicinity are closed for the duration of the works.
If you have any questions in relation to the works, please contact the Estates Helpdesk on 01326 255686 or
If you have any questions in relation to Timetabling, please contact them on
