Bishop Grosseteste University can confirm that we received a suspicious package on campus this morning. We promptly reported that matter to the Police and enacted our health and safety procedures for such an event. This involved the evacuation of the Robert Hardy and BG Futures buildings as a precautionary measure. The rest of campus was unaffected.

All buildings on campus are now open. The Police have confirmed that the package received posed no risk to the public. Teaching activities this afternoon, along with tomorrow’s Offer Holder Day, are continuing as timetabled.

Thank you to all our students and staff for being vigilant and reacting swiftly to this incident. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Lincolnshire Emergency Services and the Bomb Disposal Squad for their calm and professional support, as well as our staff, students and partnership organisations for their patience and understanding.
