12:17pm Wednesday 29th January 2014 in News
A WAVE of protest over lecturers’ pay coincided with a flood at Goldsmith’s University yesterday (January 28) afternoon.
Students and staff were evacuated from the university’s Richard Hoggart Building at around 3pm due to unexplained flooding during a two-hour national strike launched by the University and College Union.
Demonstrators had gathered outside the New Cross university to protest against academics gaining a one per cent pay increase compared to university bosses averaging around eight per cent.
A Goldsmith’s spokesman said: “The Richard Hoggart Building was closed yesterday (Tuesday 28 January) due to flooding.
“The building was reopened. We are still investigating the cause of the flooding.”
He added that the building was reopened at 9.45 this morning (January 29).
