"Where can I get information on the 2020/2021 Academic Year?"

"Can I come to College if I don't have lectures?"

In order to comply with social distancing requirements students are not permitted to visit the Campus unless for timetabled lectures for which they are required to be physically in class. Students can also collect (already pre-ordered) books from the library. Students can also return books to the collection box outside the Aungier Street Library. 

"Will there be study space in the library?"

There is currently no study space available. We will update if this situation changes. This includes the library. The library will be open for click and collect book services, where books are ordered on-line and collected in person. You will be told how this service works as part of your induction. 

"Do I have to wear a mask while on Campus and in class?"

You will be required to wear a face covering in some circumstances while on campus, as follows:
*In high traffic common areas such as at entrances, in corridors and stairwells
*In a lift
*In IT labs where students will be sitting between 1 and 2 metres apart
*Some classrooms where spacing is less than 2m, will require the wearing of face coverings

"Where can I find up to date information from the College?"

DBS will continue to issue updates to staff and students via e-mail and video. All updates are also published on DBS Current Students News
