University Business Centres

The University Business Centres are operating normal access and staffing times. We strongly encourage businesses to work from home where they can, in accordance with the Government guidance.

We are continuing to adhere to Government advice on working safely during COVID-19 in offices and contact centres and guidance for employers, employees and the self-employed, as well as new guidance as it becomes available. If you need to work in the building, we would advise that you keep your workspace well ventilated.

The Government has announced a business support campaign and published guidance for employers and businesses and support for businesses. The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership have published information about business support available for businesses affected by coronavirus.

Guidance on reducing the risks from coronavirus (Covid-19) is also available from the National Federation of Self-Employed and Small Businesses (FSB).

Additional advice is available from the Government’s Business Support website.
