COLLEGE NOTICE (Updated 12/04/21)

Resumption of delivery on College campuses continues to be limited to areas where skills training and assessment needs to take place on site. Unlike schools, Colleges of Further Education have not resumed delivery in full. The College is operating in line with the NI Executive’s Roadmap to Recovery and must wait on the Executive’s decision to trigger the next stage on the roadmap before resuming delivery.

The NI Executive is scheduled to review this later this week and should the decision be taken to trigger Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Recovery, the College will inform students accordingly. Until this takes place, students should continue to follow the direction provided by their course tutors and continue to monitor all communications via email, website and social media.


Learning Resource Centres are open for students unable to access online lessons from home. Student services and limited canteen facilities are also available. Student queries should be directed to Course Co-ordinators. General queries should be emailed to

At Southern Regional College we have excellent facilities for students, including state-of-the-art fitness suites, restaurants and hairdressing and beauty salons.

Fitness Suite and Fitness Testing Laboratory

SRC have fully equipped fitness suites in Armagh, Lurgan and Newry campuses. These include a variety of cardiovascular and resistance machines and have proven to be a tremendous asset to both sports students and staff alike.

The provision of a Fitness Testing Laboratory in Newry and Armagh has ensured that the College takes the lead in Sports Science across the Further and Higher Education sector. This facility will further enhance the excellent teaching resources for sport already available at the College and will play an integral part in providing appropriate methods of fitness assessments for various sporting organisations in the area.


Restaurants and snack bars on each campus provide students with a range of hot meals and snacks at resonable prices in a relaxed atmosphere.

Catering outlets at SRC are managed by The Mount Charles Group. There are three fun, student and staff friendly brands throughout the campuses:
