Student support over the Easter break

Posted on 17 March 2024

Whether you’re leaving York or staying on campus, student support continues over the Easter break.

Emergency support on campus

Campus Safety is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - if it's urgent, call 01904 32 3333 or download the SafeZone app for a quick response to any security or safety issue on campus

On campus




Bus services

The C1 and C2 will not operate over the Easter vacation from Monday 25 March until Sunday 7 April. They will resume as normal from Monday 8 April. The 66 and 67 will continue to be available throughout the Free Zone during this time - simply tap on and tap off. 

Easter building closures

We are continuing our pilot of building closures over the vacation to help reduce our carbon footprint. This will not affect most buildings that students use - communal student areas such as colleges, the Library, study spaces and sports centres will remain open.


Wellbeing support

Our usual sources of help and support are still available over the break, including Campus Safety and your college team. 

The Open Door team will operate on vacation opening hours of 9am-5pm (Monday to Friday). Services will be closed for the Easter bank holiday weekend between Friday 29 March and Monday 1 April 2024 (inclusive).

Download TalkCampus now to get 24/7 wellbeing support. It's a global network of students from all around the world so whenever you want to talk, someone is always there.
