Things to know Things to know

From Thursday 18 March Estates will be operating a reduced University Postal Service. For details see the latest news.

Please note, portering requests can still be made, but will be assessed on a case by case basis to determine whether they are business critical.

The Portering service covers everything from moving a filing cabinet to moving an entire office.

The service is offered on weekdays between 10am and 3pm. 

Should you need the service outside these hours, a charge out rate per porter will apply.

The Portering Team will try to meet your requirements as closely as possible, but it may not always be possible to meet short notice time or day specific requirements due to the high demand for portering services.

Portering priorities reflect University core business - Examinations, Congregation and other important events will always be the highest priority for bookings.  

Out of hours and off site portering

It is possible for the portering service to be booked out of hours and for tasks off site on university business. There is a charge for this service which is £26.10 (exc VAT) per man hour to internal customers.
