Coronavirus update: Tuesday, 17 March 2020

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff remains the Universityโ€™s top priority. Following the Prime Ministerโ€™s briefing at 5pm yesterday, Monday 16 March, the University has postponed all face-to-face teaching until further notice.

We understand you will have many questions about what this means for students on your programme.

Your Head of School or Institute will be sending out a further message to you this evening with some further information about updates that you can expect to receive in the next few days with regard to online teaching, assessment information, placement advice and support.

We have gathered some of the more general questions below that have been raised in response to yesterdayโ€™s announcement.

WLV Open Day 28 March


We sometimes get those well intended gifts over Christmas that end up in the back of a cupboard or hidden away in a drawer, but this year donโ€™t hide them away, let us put them to good use and support the homeless in Wolverhampton.

Enjoy Wolverhampton BID (Business Improvement District) in partnership with City of Wolverhampton Council are asking you to donate any unwanted Christmas gifts or โ€˜prelovedโ€™ clothes, handbags etc in our designated wheelie bins. You can find one at the University of Wolverhampton outside the Courtyard Kitchen in the Millennium City Building, available until 12 Feb 2020.

You can find others located at the Civic Centre, Mander Centre and Wulfrun Centre.

This is a great way of donating unwanted gifts or preloved items as a gesture of good will and provides support and funding to local charities and agencies, getting people off the streets and into accommodation rather than giving directly to someone rough sleeping on the city centre streets.


Merry Christmas to all of our students, staff, applicants, partners and colleagues! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„
