We're here for our community

Protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors will remain our top priority. Due to the coronavirus outbreak our events have moved online, but we are still here for our community.

We have continued to collaborate with partners across Barnet and the role we play in our local community has become more important than ever. Middlesex University has produced nearly 70,000 visors and hundreds of essential gowns and scrubs to protect NHS staff working on the frontline during COVID-19. MDX Arts and Creative Industries (ACI) Faculty staff including a team of homeworkers and even the local London fire brigade were involved in the community effort to produce and deliver the vital equipment for health workers during a time of unprecedented crisis. Read more here.

On 30 April, The Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Caroline Stock, interviewed by video call colleagues who worked on campus to create PPE equipment. She highlighted our work to create scrubs, gowns and face shields for the NHS and noted our collaboration with our local London Fire Brigade.

We have also been working with the Barnet Multi Faith Forum to share short messages about how the community has adapted to lockdown and what ideas they have been drawing on to reach out to various members of their cultural sectors. The video features many local faith leaders, secular community figures and our Vice-Chancellor Professor Nic Beech.

What’s on at Middlesex?

Protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors will remain our top priority. We are closely reviewing and monitoring the situation as well as implementing internal processes to risk assess and ready the campus to begin a gradual and strategic return.

When the time is right, we look forward to seeing our local residents coming into campus, attending our events and feeling at home. For the time being, we will continue to offer our events online.
