Accommodation during COVID-19

We are committed to creating a safe home environment and a sense of belonging for students living in University- managed accommodation. 

Keeping you safe

Here at Staffordshire University, we are doing everything we can to support our students, ensuring students are safe and comfortable within their accommodation, both now and into the future. 

YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Having a clean living environment is very important to reduce the risk associated with COVID-19 or any other viruses that may be present. We would encourage everyone to clean as you go and ensure that you wash your hands at regular intervals.  

Hand sanitiser units are located in the entrances of all accommodation blocks and houses, and anyone entering accommodation is encouraged to use these to keep themselves and others safe.

We would like to remind our University community of the other measures that help reduce the spread of viruses, including:

  • Getting vaccinated
  • Letting fresh air into buildings to increase ventilation
  • Washing your hands regularly
  • Using the hand sanitiser stations located across our campuses
  • Covering your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze
  • Regularly cleaning frequently touched surfaces - antibacterial wipes will continue to be available in all buildings.

FACE COVERINGS

Our University policy no longer requires you to wear a face covering in any of our University or Students’ Union buildings, this includes accommodation. Face coverings are a personal choice and we would expect that everyone is understanding of individual preferences.

Please be mindful that Public Health guidance remains in place suggesting individuals can still reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

University-managed accommodation

2022/2023

Accommodation will be open as normal in 2022 and applications are now live. To learn more about Staffordshire University’s accommodation offering, check out our accommodation pages.

Private accommodation

We are continuing to work closely with our Students’ Union to encourage private landlords to ensure they are prioritising the health, safety and wellbeing of our students.

Students living in private accommodation should seek guidance on their accommodation position from their landlords. The University and the Students’ Union will also continue to liaise with private landlords to remind them of their responsibilities to our students. If you encounter any difficulties with private landlords, you can contact the Staffordshire University Students’ Union Advice Centre on 01782 294629, or by emailing sac@staffs.ac.uk. Our team are in place to offer support, guidance and advocacy wherever necessary.

Will I be able to socialise?

Yes of course. We’re delighted that Government guidance now allows you to safely socialise with your friends and family.

We also want to make sure you have the opportunity to regularly socialise with others. There will be plenty of events, both face-to-face and virtual, that will give you opportunities to have a safe and fun experience while you’re living in our accommodation.

The University want to make sure you’re supported and looked after whilst you’re living with us. It’s important to remember that all of the support services the University offer are available to you. The best way to deal with any issues that you’re having is to speak up or tell someone. This way, you can get the best support appropriate to you.
