The full campus experience at Staffordshire University

Here at Staffordshire University we are looking forward to welcoming new and returning students onto our campuses in September 2021 for a full student experience. 

Covid-secure measures

On Monday 19 July 2021, we moved to Step 4 of the Government’s roadmap in which almost all remaining COVID-19 restrictions were lifted.

While this marks a significant milestone in returning to normality after lockdown, our priority remains the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and University community, while also ensuring a valuable and enriching on-campus experience.

We are therefore, for the time being, planning to maintain a number of the measures we have in place to ensure our campuses remain COVID-secure, and will continue to follow Government and Department for Education guidance as it emerges, adapting as required, and looking at how it applies to all aspects of our University's activities.

We encourage all staff, students and visitors to be understanding of other’s personal circumstances and considerate of individuals that may continue to follow their own extra precautions.

Face coverings

While face coverings are no longer a requirement by law, our University policy will continue to require all students, staff and visitors to wear a face covering while moving through all University and Students’ Union buildings, unless you are exempt.

This policy will be regularly reviewed and has been assessed prior to the start of the next academic year.  The University will next review this policy at Christmas. 

Social distancing

In line with Government guidance, stating that social distancing is no longer mandatory in Step 4 of the roadmap, we will be removing the one-metre plus (1m+) social distancing policy in our University buildings, including offices, lecture theatres and classrooms.

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. It is expected that students and staff will test regularly, at least twice a week, using the lateral flow tests which are now widely available.

Please remember that even if you have had one or both doses of your COVID-19 vaccination, you can still catch the virus and you can still pass it on to others. It is important that you continue to get tested, and if you test positive, you must still self-isolate for ten days.  

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