Keeping Covid-Safe on our campuses


Following the Government’s removal of Plan B restrictions, the university has updated its Covid-safe Arrangements and Covid-Safe Charter. We will continue to monitor the Government guidance and keep our arrangements under review.

Please wear a face covering in our university buildings

Students, staff and visitors to our campuses are expected and strongly recommended to continue to wear face coverings in our buildings, unless they are exempt*.

Face coverings continue to be required on university buses

In line with TfL’s arrangements, face coverings continue to be a requirement when using the university bus service and in university vehicles, unless you are exempt*.

* If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, please display/wear an exemption badge or lanyard. Download and wear the government's face covering exemption badge here. If you can't download the badge, you can pick one up from any of our Student Centres.

Getting regular Covid-19 symptom free (LFD) tests

We also expect staff and students who are on campus to get a Covid-19 Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test twice a week with 3-4 days between tests. Where possible, you should test yourself using a home test kit before coming to campus.

You can find details of where you can collect home test kits on our Covid testing page.

You can see details on our Covid-testing arrangements on our campuses page.

Reporting Covid

If you test positive, experience the symptoms of Covid-19 or need to self-isolate for any reason, you must let the university know as soon as possible. This will allow us to take swift action to minimise the risk to others and follow the strict procedures in place.

You can do this using the online form on the Covid-Safe Arrangements page.
