Keeping you safe

Our approach to Covid-19 has always been to follow government guidance and regulations and to keep all our people safe.

We are thrilled to welcome all our students back to campus. Most of our teaching will be face-to-face, with plenty of interactive and applied learning. Large teaching sessions will continue to be delivered online and students will have access to a range of expertly designed digital resources.

All of our facilities will be open, including our halls of residence, specialist study spaces, the gym, sports, libraries, social learning spaces, and food outlets. And our support services will be on campus to offer help if needed.

We strongly encourage all students to get vaccinated for Covid-19 before the start of term.

Asymptomatic testing

Staff, students and visitors should follow the asymptomatic testing advice for the general population and get tested if you have symptoms

Community information

The health and wellbeing of our staff, students and the people around us continues to be our primary concern. Our Community information page includes an open letter from the Vice-Chancellor and details about how we have been helping our local communities.


We strongly encourage all staff and students to have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccination at the earliest opportunity, ideally before coming to university. Please have the jab unless you are advised by your medical practitioner not to do so.

This small simple action will save lives, reduce risks, and help ensure you don’t limit your opportunities to enjoy the full vibrancy and creativity of university life.
