Safety measures on campus

In addition to changes to the teaching and learning environment, we have also introduced a range of safety measures.

The safety of staff and students is, as always, our first priority. As such, we all have a personal responsibility to help keep ourselves and our wider community safe. We are therefore maintaining some safety measures on campus, including social distancing and the use of face-coverings in indoor locations, over the summer period. All of these measures will be subject to review and revision as appropriate, in the context of any changes nationally or locally, as we approach the start of the new academic year.

We will continue to keep our staff and students informed as we plan for our return to campus.

Some of the measures we currently have on campus include: 

  • Social distancing markers and one-way walking routes
  • Socially distant, bookable study space and resources e.g. Click and Collect library service
  • Increased hygiene and cleaning regimes and hand sanitiser stations
  • Two free, washable face coverings for every student and staff member
  • Arrangements for University Halls of Residence with measures to enable social distancing, automatic gates and doors, and ‘quarantine’ support for overseas students
  • Assessed and marked COVID-secure buildings to show that they adhere to national public health guidance
  • Enhanced ventilation measures (where practical) including window airing and ventilation systems switched to 100% outdoor air
  • Practical and wellbeing support for those required to self-isolate.

Access to testing

Currently, all staff and students who are regularly working or studying on campus in Liverpool, including in our Halls of Residence, are required to take regular quick-results lateral flow tests.

We also offer access to free COVID-19 testing for staff and students with symptoms (with results within 24 hours). This includes access to at-home test kits (available to collect from campus and available for all students living in halls upon their arrival).

All these measures will be kept under review in line with changing guidance. Changes, and the latest advice, will be reflected on our dedicated COVID-Safety hub.
