Over the past month we have been getting hold of all our sites, and trying to get a full understanding of when they will be opening their doors, and in what capacity.
With easing the 2m restrictions many of our Universities will be able to open to some capacity in time for Freshers 2020.
Please note the information below was collected before the recent changes to the 2m rule, we will update our information accordingly as and when we hear from our sites..
In summary, we are delighted to announce we will be open for business from September, albeit with slightly reduced numbers for the time being.
Of our bar and restaurant areas will be open from Freshers in Sept to all, with social distancing measures in place in line with current guidelines.
Currently at 2 metres, but could easily be less than this by September.
Of our Universities say that their bars will be open in some capacity, mainly as a takeaway provider.
They will also offering some kind of table service from Freshers.
Are currently saying they will not open bar venues fully until Jan 2021.
However this may easily change if social distancing measures ease up, or Gov advice regarding the hospitality industry.
It's important to note that this is most likely to change still over the coming weeks/months, as Government start easing precautionary measures. Particularly if they start opening up pubs/bars in late June/early July as planned.
Our thoughts are that many of the current Universities saying bars will be shut/or minimum service, may indeed change to open up fully like the other 50%. If and when this happens, we will be updating you and our site list accordingly.
During such unprecedented times, we wanted to provide some clarity around what Universities are planning on doing for Freshers 2020.
From talking to our key University contacts and research conducted by RockBox, the true picture shows many Universities are planning on a September start, with Freshers still being part of that in some way or another.
In light of this, we will be adjusting our reach figures to accommodate all these changes.
For the time being, we will take a worst case scenario figure of 50% of total reach and impacts. We feel it's only right to give you and your clients a figure that we can all be confident of reaching as a minimum, and once we feel confident that other bars are following suit, we can then adjust this figure up to reflect that.
To give you an example of a medium weight 4 week Freshers campaign:
