Campus access

Campus is open, with access to bookable study spaces, libraries, on-campus support, teaching spaces and specialist facilities. 

While we are in a national lockdown, please only come on to campus if: 

  • you have scheduled activity,
  • you can’t easily or safely study where you live, or
  • you need access to resources or support which you can’t get online.

Accessing study space

You will need to book study spaces in advance. There are two booking systems: one for the libraries, and one for other buildings.

Safety on campus

When on campus, please follow government guidance to keep safe. Wear a face covering if applicable, wash your hands regularly, avoid contact and maintain two metres social distance. Those attending campus are permitted to meet in groups of more than your household as part of your formal education or training.

We have a wide range of safety measures in place to help us all keep our campus and our community safe during the pandemic.

Asymptomatic testing

Your first visit back to campus should be to get a Covid test. Before you resume activity on campus you need to take two tests, three days apart.

After your initial tests, you should keep taking regular tests every three or four days. It’s really important for the benefit of everyone on campus, students and staff.

You can book your tests now – everything you need to know is on our Covid-19 testing page.
