Demonstrations on campus

Latest update: Friday 7 June

With the continuation of the demonstration on campus by Warwick Stands With Palestine – a coalition of student and staff organisations – University House remains closed to students. The only exception is if you have written confirmation of an appointment. This includes the Learning Grids, which are closed temporarily, and we ask that you instead use the many other study spaces available across campus.

Please rest assured that these measures are in place to help the University continue its normal activity and above all keep everyone safe and secure. The demonstration is being monitored and managed in line with our legal duty.

Universities are bastions of critical thinking and open dialogue, where free speech is vigorously protected. However, racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, and any form of abuse, incitement, or harassment which is targeted at an individual or group is not acceptable. We encourage any incidents to be reported promptly via our Report + Support service.Link opens in a new window
