Students need to check their own timetables and course dates for when they need to be at college. However, HCC is open almost all year round.
Reception service for visitors
Visitors to the college should sign in at our Reception area, where you will be given a warm welcome and a visitor badge. Reception is open 8am-7pm, Monday to Thursday and 8am-5pm on Fridays. If you are visiting outside of these times, please see the security staff at the gate.
Students who have enrolled are given ID cards, and you will swipe in and out of the main gates on Falkirk Street. If you are coming to enrol, our course information office and enrolment times are below, and our friendly security team can direct you to where you need to go.
The course information line – 020 7613 9123 – is open:
- Monday-Friday: 9am-7pm and
- Friday: 9am-2pm.
At busy times, you may need to leave a message, but we aim to get back to everyone within 24 hours. At enrolment times, you may hear a message asking you to come into the college if possible.
If you want to contact another staff member and you don’t know their telephone number, call our switchboard team on 020 7613 9000. They can transfer you to other staff in the college. Switchboard is open 8am-7pm Monday to Thursday, and 8am-5pm on Fridays.
Please see the contact us section of our website for more useful numbers at HCC.
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know a staff member’s name, you can email them direclty, by using their initial, then last name (no dot!) @hackney.ac.uk – for example, John Smith’s email address would be email@example.com
If we can’t help you, we will try to find someone else who can!
