Campus access

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

You can come to campus if: 

  • you have scheduled activity,
  • you can’t easily or safely study where you live,
  • you need access to resources, practical spaces or support which you can’t get online, or
  • you have an appointment at our Covid test centre.

Accessing study and practical space

If you need to use study or practical space on campus, you will need to make a booking in advance.

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

If you are currently living in Sheffield, you can get regular Covid tests at our testing centre. Everything you need to know is on our Covid-19 testing page.

Free home-testing kits are now also widely available. You can order home-testing kits from or collect them from local pharmacies.
Please keep taking regular tests – it’s really important for the benefit of everyone on campus. Asymptomatic transmission of Covid is still a public health concern, and regular testing helps the University and the Sheffield Public Health team monitor and control any outbreaks.
