A coronavirus update for our members

The University 

We are in regular communication with the university to ensure your feedback is taken on board. 

CUSU Sabbatical officers and staff met with the University yesterday to work on outcomes from your feedback and the issues you have been having. We addressed a number of things including: 

  • Campus closures and service delivery 
  • Practicalities of remote teaching and learning 
  • Deferrals and extensions 
  • Student hardship and isolation 
  • International student support 

Due to the unprecedented situation there are some significant changes to the way the University are operating. You should read the full University update sent to all students and posted on Moodle if you have not read it already. This update is extremely important and affects the way University services are being delivered. 

Feedback and Advice 

These changes will create challenges. If you're encountering issues in your learning, it’s crucial that you share that feedback with Reps so we can work with the University to make the improvements. You can contact your rep by emailing reps.su@coventry.ac.uk

Our Advice Centre (SUAC) is also still operating, if you have issues around housing, money, visas, or your course you can email suadvice@coventry.ac.uk to be put in touch with an advisor. We are not currently offering face-to-face appointments or drop-in. 

SU Activities 

We will soon have opportunities to connect and keep in touch with each other online, games and challenges, ways you can contribute to the community and the global efforts to fight COVID-19, and most importantly, ways to support yourself and others through the coming weeks. 

We’ll be sharing more details next week, along with ways that you can suggest and share your ideas. 

Sources of Information 

You are likely receiving a lot of messages around coronavirus. To try to keep things simple both CUSU and the University are maintaining pages with the current status of issues and services, as well as frequently asked questions (FAQs). 

We will continue to update you on any new developments and respond to your queries.
