COVID-19 SAFETY
House Rules

In order to comply with Welsh Government guidelines, we've made some changes to how our building operates to make sure you can stay safe and have fun.

When you visit the building, it's important that you follow our house rules for each area. These rules don't just protect you, they help look after other students and staff as well.

When you visit the building, please bear in mind that our entertainment venues have some additional rules. Scroll down to find out more.


Use sanitiser on entering and exiting the building.

We have provided automatic sanitiser dispensers for you to use at entrances, exits, and other key locations throughout the building.

Please make use of these when you're moving through the building, as well as washing hands regularly.

Maintain a 2-metre distance.

Please maintain social distancing in all areas of the building. Reducing very close or physical contact between yourself and other people will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Keep to the left in corridors and on stairs.

We ask that everyone keeps to the left when moving through corridors and areas like the stairs. It is harder to maintain social distancing in these areas due to the size of the space, so keeping to the left and wearing a mask will help keep everyone safe.

Wear a face covering in our designated zones.

We ask that you wear a face covering in all our designated zones, unless you are exempt from wearing one. The Welsh Government have made it a legal requirement to wear a face covering in indoor public places, for both customers and staff. This includes things like shops, places of worship, hairdressers and salons, cinemas and museums, gyms and leisure centres.

Wash hands regularly and follow public health guidelines.

Washing your hands is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself and others from illnesses. It may seem obvious, but there is a right way to do it. Follow NHS guidance on how to wash hands correctly.

Read and follow the rules for each area of the building.

We offer lots of different services in our building and some spaces require different or additional rules to the ones listed above. Make sure you familiarise yourself with the rules when you visit the building, and look out for the blue Covid-19 signs for further instructions.
