We try to stay open and keep our services running when it snows.

We’ll share any other information with our staff and students via email to your Essex email address and you should also keep an eye on social media for any updates.

If you’re a member of staff you should make every reasonable effort to get to work, but if you’re unable to attend, you should speak to your line manager. Take a look at our Special Leave policy for more details.

When the conditions are very cold, please be extra careful getting around our campuses.

Make sure you stay as safe as possible by:

  • sticking to the main treated pathways
  • wearing sensible shoes for walking in icy conditions
  • avoiding steep slopes where you can, whether you are walking or on a bike
  • driving at a speed appropriate to the driving conditions
