Returning Back to University:

I am in the vulnerable category or am anxious about returning back to University. What support is there for me?

If you are in a vulnerable category or you are particularly anxious about attending University at the start of the new term, you should complete the task that has been sent to your SRM. A member of the Student Development and Wellbeing team will then contact you to discuss your individual circumstances.

Will I be able to move about the campus safely?

All corridors and spaces have been mapped by the estates team and floors will be marked with direction arrows and spacing marks for queuing.

What will the university do if there is a confirmed case on campus?

The University will identify all close contacts of the individual in question and require them to leave campus/remain in their hall of residence for 14 days quarantine or until they can provide evidence of a negative test result.

Will I return to study on campus?

We are going to start the term in a hybrid model of teaching where, for every student, some teaching is online and some is face to face. The University have reorganised every classroom so that the maximum number of students timetabled in that space allows for appropriate social distancing. They have also put hand sanitiser and desk cleaning equipment in every classroom.

Where can I find more information on the University’s health and safety approach to Covid-19?

Covid Safe Xmas


Covid-19 test centres are now open!

The University is running two Covid-19 Asymptomatic Test Centres to help ensure you have the opportunity to travel home safely during the Christmas travel window.
Whether you are living on campus in halls of residence, or in private accommodation in the City, you are encouraged to drop-in and get tested.

The test sites at the University Campuses are for students who have no symptoms and there is no booking required.
The testing is simple, safe, and confidential, and our trained support team will be on hand to help you through the process.

Getting a negative result will provide you and your loved ones with the reassurance that you can enjoy a safe festive period.
Follow our three steps to ensure you’re able to return home safely:
Plan ahead – You should get tested at least twice before travelling home. Your second test should be 3 days after your first, and 24 hours before the day you intend to travel home.
For example: Test 1: Tuesday 1 December
                      Test 2: Friday 4 December
                      Travel home: Saturday 5 December
Get tested – Students with no symptoms can get tested at the following times/locations:

The Great Hall, Creative Campus:
10am – 5pm, Monday 30 November – Friday 4 December.
Sports Centre, Hope Park:
7am – 7pm, from now – Tuesday 1 December
10am – 5pm, Wednesday 2 December – Friday 4 December
10am – 5pm, Monday 7 December – Friday 11 December

You will need to bring your mobile phone so that you can register on arrival, and you should receive your results within 20 – 30 minutes.
 After your result – Once you get your second negative test result, you should return home within 24 hours.  

If you get a positive result, you will need to self-isolate and book a PCR test to confirm you have the virus. Once confirmed, you will have to self-isolate for 10 days in your term-time accommodation. Once your isolation period is over, you will still have enough time to travel home for the holidays. If you receive a positive result you should contact the University’s Covid Control Team to inform them of your result, and they will provide advice and next steps.
