Coronavirus information

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.

Staffordshire University currently has campuses in Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas (outlined below), and is closely monitoring local guidance to ensure the continued health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and local communities.

For further information concerning the UK Government's three-tier system and what this means for our Connected University community, please see the following tier-related guidance.

Tier 1 (Medium)

National restrictions continue to be in place.

  • Stafford
