A healthy campus

Although most legal COVID restrictions have eased in England, we remain committed to providing a safe and COVID-secure environment. As part of our Community Wellness Pledge we ask everyone to take responsibility to keep up-to-date on changes to Government and University COVID guidance which is updated regularly .

We are maintaining our enhanced levels of cleaning, ventilation and processes to keep our spaces safe and our community healthy.  A university-wide institutional risk assessment is routinely updated with safety guidance that impacts all campus facilities and events. Additionally, all on-campus events and activities are covered by local risk mitigations that have been subject to review by our COVID Risk Assessment group.
