Limited Access to USJ’s Campuses

Limited Access to USJ’s Campuses
Week starting Sunday, 23 February 2020


Having received queries on access to campus facilities, I remind you that the following rules are in force, until further notice.

1. For students:

  • The DSES will give Higher Education Institutions a week’s public notice before they may restart classroom work on campus.
  • Meanwhile, at USJ, teaching, learning and other academic activities continue but in online mode – if you are having difficulties, contact your teacher or Coordinator directly.
  • USJ’s Library and administrative services are operational online.
  • Access to campus facilities may be authorised in exceptional cases by Deans, Coordinators or Heads of Office.
  • Students in USJ’s Residential Hall follow the rules and procedures approved for their particular situation.

2. For Staff:

  • The general principle is that work continues but from home.
  • Work on campus may be allowed or even required to ensure essential services and is directly managed by Deans, Coordinators and Heads of Office.
  • Staff who, for justifiable reasons, wish to work from campus rather than from home may seek permission from their respective Dean, Coordinator or Head of Office, who will balance the reasons given with the following principles:

✓  contacts on campus should be kept to a minimum;

✓  meetings are to be held online whenever possible.

  • Any significant change to the successful practice adopted by academic and administrative units over the past three weeks requires the endorsement of the respective Line Manager.

Thank you all for your excellent cooperation and for the enthusiasm with which you have turned this challenging month into a learning and team-building opportunity.
