Covid-19: Latest updates

This page is updated with the latest Covid-19 announcements for students. For staff updates, visit the Beyond Covid-19 intranet pages.


Resuming face-to-face teaching

14 April 2021

Following the government’s April 13 update on in-person teaching, students who are learning online will not be able to return to campus teaching before 17 May.

This means that most of our undergraduate students will not have planned on-campus teaching before exams and assessments begin. 

Postgraduate students

For postgraduate taught students, we plan to resume on-campus teaching from 17 May. We will contact you directly with details.

Postgraduate research students can access specialist research facilities where necessary. If you do not need these facilities, please continue to study from home.

We are developing plans for further reopening of research spaces and other facilities. We aim to provide many campus facilities for research students from 17 May, and will update you through Blackboard and research institute communications.

International students

If you are an international student, whether in Sheffield or in your home country, our International Experience Team will contact you to discuss your options for the remainder of the academic year.

Teaching and learning in 2021–22

We are working hard to ensure opportunities to recoup delayed learning and practical experiences, whether over the summer or in the first few weeks of Semester 1 in September. We will update you as plans are confirmed.

Support for final year students

If you are graduating this year, we continue to develop our Class of 2021 offer. This is a wide-ranging package of support to help you address the challenges you’ll face as graduates and to make the most of the time you have left at Hallam.

Further information

We will give as much further detail as we can in our weekly Student Digest email, and your course teams will be in contact with you too. Please do keep checking your email and Blackboard sites for updates.


Covid testing and campus access over Easter

29 March 2021

If you are leaving Sheffield over Easter, you must get tested before you travel to minimise the spread of Covid across the country.

Our testing site is open from 9.20am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, but will be closed from 1–6 April. 

Book a Covid test now

Returning to Sheffield

If you have local testing facilities, you should get tested again before you travel back to University. And when you’re back in Sheffield, you must take a test as soon as possible.

Once you are back on campus, you should be taking regular tests every three or four days. This benefits all students and staff, as it helps us to manage any Covid outbreaks.

Access to campus over Easter

All University buildings except the libraries will be closed from 1–6 April. 

Libraries will remain open 24/7, but please remember to book your learning space in advance.

Our library guide has more information about library services over Easter, including information about click and collect and postal loans.  

Outside of 1–6 April, campus buildings will typically be open 9am–5pm between 29 March and 11 April, with some exceptional access over weekends.

Visit the campus facilities page for information on booking study space in the libraries and other buildings.
