Coronavirus

Here at Staffordshire University, we are doing everything we can to support our students and staff through the COVID-19 pandemic. This page contains all of the latest updates from the University.

If you are a Staffordshire University student studying with one of our Collaborative Academic Partners, please contact the institution in question for information about local arrangements.

If you require accessibility tools, you can use 'ReciteMe' assistive technology service to read this page out loud, translate into your local language or adjust reading options. 

COVID-secure measures

Throughout the pandemic we have been following Government and Department for Education guidance as it emerges, looking at how it applies to all aspects of our University activities in order to keep our students and staff safe.

Face coverings

From Thursday 27 January 2022, the Government has stated that face coverings are no longer required by law in indoor settings. Therefore, the University policy no longer requires you to wear a face covering in any of our University or Students’ Union buildings.

Face coverings will now be a personal choice and we would expect that everyone is understanding of individual preferences. As a matter of policy, we would actively encourage students and staff to wear face coverings in order to minimise the spread of the virus.

Please be mindful that Public Health guidance also remains in place suggesting individuals should continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Social distancing

The Government has not reinstated mandatory social distancing and therefore social distancing will not be required in University buildings. However, please be considerate of individuals who may wish to continue to keep their distance and follow extra precautions.

COVID-19 testing

Testing remains an important step we can all take in terms of looking after our own health and that of other students and staff. 

The Department for Education requires all students to test, at least twice a week, using the lateral flow tests which are widely available. It is important that you continue to get tested, and if you test positive, you must self-isolate.  

Test reporting is essential. How you report your result depends on how you get tested.
