Dear Students

I would like to give you advance notice that on 28 February 2014 we will be hosting a visit from the Chancellor of the University of London, HRH The Princess Royal, who will be visiting both the library and the INTO St George's Centre.

Some staff and students are already involved in the preparations for the visit. The Princess Royal will be meeting these students and learning more from them about St George's and their studies and ambitions. We shall be filming parts of the visit for everyone to view later; there will also be some opportunity for staff and students to see the Chancellor, albeit at a distance.

  • There are, however, a number of restrictions that will be in place on the day and it is important for security reasons that everyone understands and follows them.
  • The library will be completely closed on the morning of 28 February 2014. It will reopen from 12 noon.
  • Staff and students should take particular care to ensure they have their SGUL ID with them on the day. This will be essential for those wanting access to the Computer Rooms near the library.
  • Please do not use smart phones or cameras to photograph the visit - there will be an official photographer and pictures of the visit will be posted on twitter on the @mySGUL account and can be accessed and shared from there.
  • Students and staff wishing to use the Computer Rooms near the library will need to access them via the lift area only. You will not be able to bring bags to that area.

Thank you in advance for your help for the visit.

With kind regards

Professor Peter Kopelman
