Preparing to visit RAD headquarters

RAD headquarters is open to all students, teachers and visitors with no requirement to book in advance and the RAD Shop is open to all customers. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Before visiting the RAD

Visitors are encouraged to take a lateral flow test before visiting RAD headquarters; if you have COVID-19 symptoms you are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.

Check with the NHS if you have symptoms.

How to Stay Safe.


Parking is not available on site, unless you are a blue badge holder.

We have increased the number of bike racks available to encourage students to cycle to the building. These are available on a first come, first served basis.

On arrival at RAD headquarters

  • You may wish to wear a face covering to enter the building and in all communal areas and whilst moving around the building, but it is not mandatory. Please respect the choices of others to wear a face covering or not.
  • Please note that students will receive guidance on what to expect in studios and in classes from those departments. We are following current DfE guidance as both a Higher Education and Further Education  provider as well as guidance for  Out-of-School settings.

Once inside

  • Hand sanitisers are available throughout the building, and cleaning of all our facilities is taking place on a regular basis, particularly high contact surfaces.
  • The Canteen is open and you are welcome to use it.
  • Changing Rooms are open and can be used by more than one user at a time. Toilets are open to the public.
  • The RAD shop is open, operating a one in one out policy. Please allow for enough time to enter the shop. A Click & Collect, and uniform and shoe fitting services are also available. For more detailed information or to place an order, visit the RAD Enterprises website.
  • Our guidelines are continually reviewed in line with government guidance and are therefore subject to change.
