We ask that our students closely follow government guidelines to protect themselves, their families and the community from coronavirus (Covid-19).

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions for our students:

Q: What do I need to do about my accommodation?

A: You should follow the advice provided in your accommodation to limit the spread of Covid-19.

This includes:

  • Not having visitors to your flat

  • Observing social distancing both in your flat and in communal areas

Government advice states that you should stay wherever you are. You can read more official advice on what students should do during coronavirus on the government website.
