The Shield Cafe has now re-opened

We’ve put together a handy video to let you know what we’ll be doing in Students' Union spaces to keep you safe. You can watch it here.

The safety of you, our student staff and full-time staff team is our number 1 priority. As you’ll know everything in our lives feels and seems a bit different right now, and this is the same for all our spaces on our campuses, including The Shield Cafe. We’ve worked hard though to make sure everything is in place to keep you safe. At The Shield Cafe you'll find;

  • Hand sanitiser stations at the entrance and exit points
  • Helpful and clear signage that explains how the Cafe operates and any rules you need to follow when using the space.
  • Social distancing floor markings to remind us to keep our distance from each other.
  • A one-way system, with seperate entrance and exit points.
  • Enhanced cleaning, with additional cleaning of our spaces taking place throughout the day, with deep cleaning taking place prior to opening and after closing each day.
  • Contactless payments preferred.

We cannot wait to welcome you to The Shield.
