What to do if you or your housemates have symptoms of COVID-19

If you or your housemates have symptoms of COVID-19 you can access support and guidance on the steps you need to follow to help the University maintain a covid-secure environment via the link below. 

Our response and support processes are designed to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our students. By understanding these, keeping informed and taking action when it’s necessary, we will be able to offer information advice and support.

See our guidance and support page 

Stay at home and follow self isololation guidance

Stay at home and follow the self-isolation guidance if:

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste);
  • you're waiting for a coronavirus test result;
  • you've tested positive for coronavirus – this means you have coronavirus;
  • you live with someone who has symptoms, is waiting for a test result or has tested positive; or
  • someone in your support bubble has symptoms, is waiting for a test result or has tested positive

If you are self-isolating:

  • do not go to work, school or public places – work from home if you can;
  • do not go on public transport or use taxis;
  • do not go out to get food and medicine – order it online or by phone, or ask someone to bring it to your home;
  • do not have visitors in your home, including friends and family – except for people providing essential care; and
  • do not go out to exercise – exercise at home or in your garden, if you have one

Detailed self-isolation guidance can be found on the NHS website.

If you are self-isolating and are a Student at the University, please ensure you fill out Self-Isolation Declaration form for students

There is separate advice if you're told by NHS Test and Trace that you've been in contact with a person with coronavirus.

For information about self-isolating when you come to the UK, see GOV.UK: how to self-isolate when you travel to the UK

To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home and use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
