Exciting news Catalyst will be having it’s official opening on Friday 18th January.

HRH The Princess Royal will be helping us mark this occasion along with some other VIPs who, will also have the opportunity to view various installations about the work which is taking place by staff and students in the building and across campus.

Due to the nature of the event, there will be some special arrangements in place for the morning, although Catalyst will be open and all services will be available.

Most importantly:

You will need your UniCard to get into the building.

No UniCard, no admittance – just for this morning.

Everyone is welcome to observe the plaque unveiling during the morning, and to view the various displays situated on the Ground Floor.

The security services have emphasised that photography will not be allowed while HRH is on campus so please refrain from using your phones etc. for pictures while our Royal guest is with us. There will be official photos on the University website before the end of the day.

Although Catalyst is open as normal there may be some temporary restrictions on where you can go – we will keep these to a minimum.

Thanks for your understanding and hope to see you there.
