The health and safety of all who study and work here is our highest priority, and we will all need to make adjustments to the way we live and work.

In particular, you are asked to:

  • Get vaccinated as soon as possible
  • Continue to wash your hands (or use sanitizer) as much as possible
  • Wear a face covering where indicated (unless exempt), in accordance with the University’s face covering policy
  • Maintain distancing when moving about between areas/buildings within College
  • Avoid gathering in corridors, staircases, entrances, exits, and lifts/elevators
  • Give way to others if you meet in a narrow space
  • Be considerate of other people's space and social distance where possible
  • Obey any restrictions, such as safe distance markers for queueing
  • When meeting in person
     o   Limit numbers to essential members only
     o   Ensure the room is well ventilated
     o   Consider wearing a face covering 
     o   Maintain some distance where possible
  • Stagger your breaks to ensure dining areas are not overloaded

If you show coronavirus symptoms, you must stay at home and follow the government’s advice on self-isolating

  • The three main symptoms that NHS guidance asks you to look out for are high fever, a new continuous cough and loss of taste or smell
  • Staff and students that show possible symptoms should book a test using the University’s in-house testing service
  • SSO is required and users must be on the University network, eduroam or VPN to book a test
