The University will be operating a testing centre for staff and students who currently have no symptoms of Covid-19. It will be open from 30 November to 9 December.  Read more. 

 

Our campus is a Covid-secure environment and will be open for teaching, research and student support, with Covid-19 precautions in place, for the new academic year. All students will receive individual timetables which will show them when they need to be on campus. Staff who need to return to campus will be advised of this by their line managers. The campus will not be open to visitors for the time being.

Work has been going on throughout the summer to prepare the campus. 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. We have also produced an animation which shows what preparations are being undertaken for the start of term. Please remember you should only be on campus if you cannot work from home and by prior arrangement with your line manager.
