Staying safe – COVID-19 safety guidelines on campus

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We encourage you to follow our safety guidelines – this will help us protect each other and reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19 on campus. 

Restrictions have lifted and a sense of normality has returned, but we are still in a pandemic and so it’s important that we move forward with caution to protect ourselves, each other and the most vulnerable in our society.

Remember – hands, face, space:

  • Wash hands and use hand sanitiser regularly. Sanitiser dispensers will be available at key points around campus.
  • We strongly recommend everyone wear a face covering while moving around indoors on campus. We expect that you will wear face coverings in lecture theatres and large teaching spaces, and they may be required in other areas – this will be indicated by clear signage. Face coverings will be available in all teaching spaces and other locations around campus.
  • Social distancing is no longer legally required, however please continue to follow any safety signage and guidance you receive from staff, both in teaching settings and elsewhere around campus.

In addition, we encourage you to:

  • Get vaccinated if you can. A recent student survey told us that 95% of students are already either fully or partially vaccinated, but if you’re still looking to get your first or second jab we can support you.
  • Get tested twice a week (even if you have no symptoms) – testing kits will be available from catering outlets on campus as they reopen. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or test positive, you’re legally required to self-isolate and not come to campus for ten days. Find out more in our self-isolation guidance for students.
  • Rave responsibly: there are many things you can do to protect yourself and the wider community whilst still going out and having fun.

You can find more information about our COVID-19 guidance and staying safe on campus on our Health, Wellbeing and Safety webpage.
