Find out how we are living with Covid-19, so you can plan your university experience.

Help us keep case numbers low

We will continue to monitor data provided by local public health teams and the WHO to make sure we can react to any Covid-19 changes.

Getting vaccinated

Vaccines help to protect you and other people, the University strongly recommends getting vaccinated. Find out how to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

Getting tested and reporting cases

The government is no longer providing free lateral flow device (LFD) tests. Tests are available from pharmacies including the on-campus pharmacy.

If you have symptoms, we recommend staying at home for five days. You can use our reporting form to let us know so we can keep track of cases on campus.

Contact-tracing app

You can use the NHS Covid-19 app to help the NHS keep control of Coronavirus and protect everyone. It is part of the Test and Trace service in England.

The contact-tracing app notices and logs other app users nearby. If any of those users later test positive for Covid-19, you’ll receive an alert with advice.

Cold or flu symptoms

If you’re not feeling well, respect the community and avoid spreading illnesses.

Face coverings

We encourage you to wear a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces on campus – it’s not the law but we encourage this.

Read government guidance on face coverings.


Regular and thorough hand-washing is one of the most effective ways of killing germs and reducing the spread of coronavirus.

There are also clearly labelled hand sanitiser stations across campus.


Our cleaners prepare our campus buildings for use by staff and students. Cleaning materials and hand sanitiser will be available if you need them.

Official guidance

The UK government has information about Coronavirus and its approach to Covid-19.

Health guidance
