Student Update: University and College Union (UCU) industrial action suspended
Following an email to all students on Tuesday 11 November, we would like to inform you that we have been notified that the University and College Union (UCU) industrial action has been suspended from 20 November 2014 until 15 January 2015. The UCU and Universities UK (UUK), who are negotiating on behalf of universities, will meet regularly between now and 15 January 2015 to continue negotiations. We will keep students updated of any further developments.

Graduate Centre building work – getting around campus
As reported in October’s QMUL Student, work has commenced on the construction of a new Graduate Centre for QMUL. The Centre will be situated between Bancroft Road and the People’s Palace, on the site of the old Post Room and the IRC Building at the Mile End campus.
Due to safety considerations there is currently no access between Geography Square and Bancroft Road while the construction work takes place. There is still pedestrian access to the Fogg Building and the Temporary Building from Geography Square and there is signage directing you to your location via alternative routes. All outlets on the west side of the campus – such as Drapers Bar and Kitchen, Infusion Shop and Qmotion Health and Fitness Centre – remain open for business. Find out more on my.qmul.
You can download the updated Mile End campus map here.

To complete the survey, which closes at 5pm on Monday 15 December, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZBJ3YPS.
