Important information for students living on campus

Following the most recent Government advice, you must stay indoors. Please read further information about living on campus during this time.

On Monday 23 March, the UK Government made it very clear that all citizens living in the UK must stay indoors and only go outside for essential purposes. It is important that all students on campus follow these rules. You should read about these rules here.

This means staying in your residence for the majority of your time, aside from getting some exercise once a day (on your own or with your flat/housemates), to purchase essential items such as food, to travel to work or for medical needs. You should make sure that if you are outside of your flat/residence that you remain at least 2 metres away from someone else.

We understand this will be a very difficult time for you to have to live on campus under these measures and we are here to support you. Please keep checking the Student Hub as we will be providing more information to help you through this time.

Moving teaching online

The University management has decided to suspend all face-to-face teaching and begin online teaching from Monday 23 March.

We will be sharing specific information with all students on how to use and access your learning online so please keep checking your emails and look out for this guidance.

The wellbeing of our students will always be our number one priority and we hope you understand this measure has been taken as we believe this is best for our community.

We will provide as much help and support as possible to all our students.
