Current status of our campuses

Reopening of outdoor hospitality and non-essential retail provisions on our campuses

On Monday 5 April 2021 the Government confirmed outdoor hospitality and non-essential retail can re-open from Monday 12 April 2021, after the government’s four tests to move to the next stage of the roadmap to unlock have been met. Details on the latest changes to our service provisions on campus can be found on our Returning To Campus in 2021 pages.

Returning to campus

On Tuesday 13 April 2021 the Government announced that all University students who have not yet returned to campus and in-person teaching will be able to do so from Monday 17 May 2021, at the earliest. More on information on what this means for students here at Staffordshire University can be accessed via our Returning To Campus 2021 page.

New Government guidance on COVID-19 testing

Here at Staffordshire University, we are doing everything we can to support our students and staff through the COVID-19 pandemic. But we need your help to ensure that government guidance is being followed correctly and our community stays safe as restrictions begin to ease. 

When planning to come onto campus to take part in Learning and Teaching or any other activities, you must take a lateral flow rapid test before using any of our buildings or facilities, and take weekly tests – ideally twice a week - thereafter.This will ensure that you are safe to carry out activities on campus and will help to minimise the risk of unknowingly infecting students and staff.

Please take a test as soon as you arrive on campus before using any University facilities or attending face-to-face sessions.  Please remember that you are now required by the Government to carry out a PCR test, following a positive Lateral Flow Test result.

All test results must be reported in line with the latest guidance. This lets us know you have been tested, and we can report our overall testing figures to the government, so they can be assured we take our COVID-secure responsibilities seriously. If you test positive, you must self-isolate for 10 days and report this via our Self-Isolation Declaration form.

Please visit our Returning To Campus 2021 pages to see the latest guidance on COVID-19 testing in full.
