Campus safety

By taking personal responsibility for our health and actions we can help to keep each other safe and reassure the most vulnerable in our community.

We're asking you to:

Stay at home when you're unwell: If you develop a high temperature (either on its own or with any other symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19) you should stay at home and avoid contact with others. Our free PCR test centre will remain accessible to support those with symptoms to make an informed decision before coming onto campus.

Wear a face covering: We strongly recommend that you continue to wear a face covering inside University buildings, especially when in crowded areas and with people you don’t usually meet with. We also remind you to respect any requests to wear a face covering (unless exempt) when being taught in person by a staff member at high risk from COVID-19.

Get boosted: If you haven't yet had your COVID-19 vaccination or booster jab, please make this a priority.

Get support if you need it: If you have any concerns please contact your School (students) or line manager (staff) in the first instance. You can also contact our Student Services team, or take a look at our wellbeing resources.
