Kimberlin Library

The library will be open from the start of term. Our spaces have undergone adjustments for safety and physical distancing, one-way systems, screens have been installed, signage and hand sanitising stations are in place.

We’re still finalising some of the details around our processes so please check back here for more on how you can access the Library soon. 

The library team have worked on an enhanced package of support and online resources for you to access. See our Teaching and Learning page for more information.

QEII Leisure Centre 

The team at the QEII Leisure Centre are looking forward to welcoming students and staff and have been making preparations to ensure you can enjoy the facilities safely.

To comply with Government guidelines, there will be some changes to how you access the facilities.

All activities (including swimming and attending the gym) will need to be pre-booked. All activities will be bookable up to six days in advance and customers can do this via the app or online booking system.

Social distancing measures and capacity levels will be in place to meet recommended guidelines set out by the appropriate governing bodies and university policies. You can find about re-opening measures here.

Beaumont Park

Time has been scheduled for student sports clubs to train at Beaumont Park from Monday 5 October. More information will be communicated from DMUsport to clubs via their club committees, including how to book transport. DMUsport will share more on their website soon.
