As part of our commitment, and the government’s, to keeping ourselves safe and protect others we encourage anyone visiting campus to take a quick turn-around asymptomatic Covid-19 test before their visit.
Students and staff should take two tests weekly test at the SportsDock, in Newham community testing centres or through home testing kits available for order here. We strongly encourage all students to test in advance of returning to campus and subsequently to test twice weekly.
The on campus testing facility is located in Arena 2 at Sports Dock, which is located in the Docklands Campus. It’s preferable that you book ahead using this online booking form but some walk-in appointments are available.
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: Book your testing appointment.
STEP 2: Bring your student ID and mobile phone to the centre at SportsDock on the day of your appointment. The tests are simple and non-invasive, and take only a few minutes.
STEP 3: Get your confidential result on the same day via email or text message.
STEP 4: If negative, make your travel plans as soon as possible. If positive, let Student Services know so UEL can make arrangements to support you.
To find out more:
If your test results is negative, we encourage you to travel as soon as possible after receiving the result. If is is positive, you will have to self-isolate for 10 days.
Students who test positive should let Students Services know immediately by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then provide you with the necessary support.
Staff are asked to inform Greg Price or Simon Pridgeon in HR.
Once the self-isolation period has elapsed, you may travel. We strongly encourage students and staff to keep their families, friends and communities safe and healthy by not travelling if they have tested positive.
For students living in the Residence Halls who must self-isolate we offer a 14-day support plan, which includes each individual and flat (if applicable) receiving an isolation pack.
There will be events, activities and regular pastoral support offered. Please contact email@example.com or call our Covid-19 hotline at +44 (0)20 8223 3119 for information.
