Will Highlight Thomas Street and Highlight Parkgate stay open even if school is temporarily or permanently closed?2020-03-24T15:45:45+00:00

Yes. We are here, as always, to provide you a safe home away from home, whether school is in session or not.

How is Highlight working to ensure the buildings are safe?2020-03-24T15:09:10+00:00

a. The latest updates from the HSE are sent to our residents via the Student Portal. We also have posters around site with a QR code which takes you directly to the most up to date guidance issued by the HSE.
b. We have hand sanitizer available at the reception area.
c. We have closed the gym, study room and most of the social space to encourage social distancing. The laundry room is operated on a one in, one out basis.
d. We will accept and deliver parcels wearing gloves and will leave parcels on a table near reception so no contact is required.
e. We ask that all students keep 2m (6 ft) from the onsite team and that they keep 2m (6 ft) from other students in the building.
