Our campus is a Covid-secure environment and is currently open for a limited number of staff, and for students on specific courses. Covid-19 precautions are in place.

The Department for Education indicates that staff working within Higher Education are deemed to be critical workers for the purpose of accessing school and other childcare providers. The letter here can be used as evidence of your ‘key worker’ status as an employee of the University of Huddersfield.

The University will be operating a testing centre for staff and students who currently have no symptoms of Covid-19 and who are attending campus. Read more.

Lots of signage is in place to provide guidance about how to move around campus, together with instructions on what we should all do while we are there. You can find a copy of the guidance here and view an animated version. Please remember you should only be on campus if you cannot work from home and by prior arrangement with your line manager.
