Construction work

A very small number of Brighthelm houses are located next to an area of campus development and will be affected by construction noise and disruption for the next few years. A handful of rooms will be more impacted than others.

Construction hours are 8am–6pm Monday to Friday and 8am–1pm on Saturday. View our campus map to see where the main development area is located.
