Here are the details of the shared services that will be available at the Penryn Campus during the whole Easter holiday period generally, and over Easter weekend specifically, (Friday 18 to Monday 21 April, inclusive).

  • Campus Patrol: Campus Patrol will be available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week throughout the Easter holiday period and staff will be contactable either at the Reception Desk or via the following mobile number: 07768 557779.  Please note that Campus Patrol will NOT be contactable via the Main Reception telephone number on Good Friday and Easter Monday as the Switchboard will be closed.
  • Caretaking: Caretaking services will be available as usual between 06.00 and 22.00 throughout the Easter holiday weekend including Good Friday and Easter Monday.
  • Mailroom: The Mailroom will be closed from 17.00 on Thursday 17 April and will reopen at 08.00 on Tuesday 22 April, when normal service will resume.
  • Cleaning: There will be no daily cleaning service from Good Friday to Easter Monday.  Normal service will resume at 06.00 on Tuesday 2 April.
  • Recycling and Duty Cleaner Services: There will be no recycling and duty cleaner services between 18.00 on Thursday 17 April and 08.00 on Tuesday 22 April, when normal service will resume.
  • Timetabling and room bookings: The timetabling office will close at 17.00 on Thursday 17 April and will re-open at 09.00 on Tuesday 22 April.  All web-based room booking services will remain available throughout this period.

The Estates department’s emergency call-out system will remain in operation throughout the Easter holiday period.

Any member of staff who intends to work during the Easter holiday period (i.e. between 17.30 on Thursday 17 April and 07.00 on Tuesday 22 April) should email Dave Raybould in advance.  This will enable Campus Patrol to ensure that the relevant areas are locked and unlocked as required, and to help us identify who is authorised to be on campus and who is not.

Any such members of staff will also be required to sign in and out at Reception, which will be staffed by Campus Patrol on Good Friday and Easter Monday.
