Wear a face covering

We expect you to wear a face covering when moving around indoors, in crowded indoor spaces, when interacting with support staff and when asked to during teaching.

It’s really important to:

  • protect the University and local community
  • show respect and consideration for others
  • reduce Covid-19 transmissions
  • enjoy the full university experience
  • support government public advice

Hands, face, space and fresh air

When you’re on campus, keep a safe distance from others and follow signage around campus.

Wash your hands regularly and wipe down your desk and equipment before and after use.

Open windows in areas that do not have mechanical ventilation, where possible.

Please remember to be respectful on campus, at home and in the community.

Scan Hallam QR Codes

You must register on the Hallam QR code app and scan our QR codes around campus. We’ll use this information to let you know if you’ve come into contact with someone who’s tested positive.

Take regular tests

If you're on or around campus and don’t have Covid-19 symptoms, you must take lateral flow tests twice a week. You can get free lateral flow test kits by:

Do not use a lateral flow test if you have Covid-19 symptoms. Arrange a PCR test as soon as possible.

Report Covid-19 cases

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms or test positive, you will need to report it to the University and self-isolate immediately.

Read our guidance on when and how to self-isolate.

Outbreaks of Covid-19

The University has a robust plan to manage outbreaks of Covid-19. This is developed in conjunction with local public health services and government guidance.

Accommodation

If you are required to isolate in halls while the outbreak is managed, we will provide essential support, such as:

  • food deliveries
  • support with your studies
  • access to wellbeing services if required

Studying

If there is an outbreak in your class, we may need to make changes to our teaching delivery. If we do, you will be notified by the University.
