While many of you will already have travelled home, we know those who have not are concerned about what they should do now.
The Government’s latest advice is that students remaining at university should now stay where they are and not attempt to travel.
This means if you are living in student halls, or private rented accommodation, you should remain there and stay indoors while current restrictions are in force. As the Prime Minister said, staying put and remaining indoors are now crucial to slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19, to protect the NHS from being overwhelmed, and save the lives of fellow citizens.
We are here to support students who have no alternative accommodation or who cannot go home. For those unable to leave, please continue to stay safe and importantly follow social distancing guidance. This requires everyone to keep at least two metres apart from anyone else to minimise the spread of the virus.
Do not invite visitors into the halls or other shared accommodation, specifically there should under no circumstances be any social gatherings outside your immediate flat.
Your shared flat (whether in a Hall or in private rented accommodation) is considered a ‘household’ therefore if anyone in your shared flat is self-isolating due to symptoms of cough or fever, all flatmates are now required to isolate in the flat for 14 days. More details can be found in the Government’s stay at home guidance.
Those living off campus should not access campus buildings.
We all appreciate that social distancing is not easy, but no one is immune from the virus and from passing it on, perhaps to someone who may then experience serious effects.
In order for the University to focus its resources on students who require support at this difficult time, please let us know where you are currently living and whether you would like someone to contact you by completing our online form.
Even if you don't require additional support at the moment, please still let us know where you currently are living.
