News feed for Trinity College Dublin.

Dec 02, 2010

LATEST UPDATE: Thursday, December 2nd, 2010.  15.00hrs.

Trinity College wishes to advise that following a review of the current ground conditions and the weather forecast for the next 24 hours the arrangements below will be in force. 

Due to the on-going and changing weather conditions it is not possible to guarantee to maintain safe routes to and between all parts of College at all times during normal opening hours for the provision of services to the full College community who would be present on campus during  normal operations.  Many staff and students are experiencing great difficulties travelling from their place of residence to College and cannot be guaranteed safe return home in the evening.  Staff who have concerns in relation to their ability to travel to or from work, should discuss the issue with their manager/supervisor, in order to decide on mutually satisfactory arrangements.

PLEASE NOTE:  All further communications relating to the College’s operations during this spell of bad weather will be posted on the College website.
