To ensure all visitors to the Nexus building feel safe, we’ve produced a few guidelines so that you know what to expect before you visit.

What we’d like visitors to do:

  • Enter the building via the front doors and use intercom where necessary to gain access (unless you have specific requirements)
  • After entering, please use the sanitisation stations in the reception area
  • Report to reception and wait in the designated waiting area for collection
  • Adhere to the one-way routes, as signposted, to ensure effective distancing
  • Wash hands frequently and use sanitisation stations available as required
  • Follow guidance around the building, in common spaces and meeting rooms and ensure social distancing is observed
  • Use the back door only for exiting the building
  • Please DO NOT visit Nexus if you are feeling unwell or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
  • If you feel unwell during your visit or within 7 days, please let your host know, to ensure we can instigate track & trace as necessary

Further information:

  • Wearing of Face Coverings: To help ensure safety and minimise opportunity for Coronavirus transmission, visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings where 2m distancing is not possible. These areas may include but are not limited to lift lobbies, stairwells, corridors and toilets.

    Face coverings will be required, consistent with current legislation, at all catering outlets operated by the University of Leeds when they reopen.

  • Affine Café, Holistic Suite, Lecture Theatre and Seminar Suites: these spaces will remain closed as mandated by law until regulations change
  • Travel: If you are not displaying COVID-19 symptoms and need to attend the building, we encourage you to avoid public transport (if possible), exercise social distancing and wear a face mask
  • Toilet facilities: to ensure hygiene, there is soap, paper hand towels and hand sanitiser. Hand dryers will be switched off to prevent droplets from creating a spray and doors to communal washrooms will be propped open to remove the need to touch the door surface
