If you or someone you live with has symptoms of COVID-19, or test positive for COVID-19 or, if you have been contacted by NHS Track and Trace and need to self-isolate, here you can access support and guidance on the steps you need to follow to help the University maintain a COVID-secure environment.
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.
The guidance on this page is intended for students at the University. If you are a member of staff please refer to staff guidance on IRIS.
If you have any symptoms of coronavirus, it is important that you follow these steps:
If you are at home, in University-managed residences, or in shared private accommodation when you experience COVID-19 symptoms, stay there and do not come onto campus. If you are on campus, make sure you maintain two-metre social distancing, wear your face covering, apply hand gel and head home immediately.
If you have symptoms, you must immediately self-isolate. Email your tutor to let them know that you will not be able to attend your face-to-face classes. You can visit the NHS website for more information in how to self-isolate.
Call 119, or visit the official UK Government website to book or order your test. If your test result is negative, as long as you feel well and have not been told to isolate by NHS test and trace, you no longer have to isolate.
If your result is positive, keep isolating for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. Your household and other contacts must self-isolate for 10 days from when you start self-isolating. After your isolation, you can come back to campus if you do not have any symptoms, or you just have a cough or changes to your sense of smell or taste – these can last for weeks after the infection has gone. If you have not had symptoms, the 10 days starts from when you had the test. If you get symptoms after your test, self-isolate for a further 10 days from when your symptoms start.
If your result is positive, or you need to isolate because someone in your household is positive or showing symptoms, you need to let us know by completing our declaration form. Once you have completed the online form the COVID-19 Support and Response Team will contact you to offer information, advice, guidance and support. If you’re isolating within University accommodation, we can help to organise food and other essential resources so you don’t have to leave your accommodation.
If your test result is positive, you also need to share your contacts via the NHS Test and Trace app.
If you are self-isolating and are a Student at the University, please ensure you fill out Self-Isolation Declaration form for students to enable our COVID-19 Response and Support team to guide you.
This includes anyone who:
If you are self-isolating:
Detailed self-isolation guidance can also be found on the NHS website.
If someone in your household (this includes a university flat or a shared house) is feeling ill and is having a Covid-19 test, you should not come onto campus.
Contact your course leader. If the ill person in your household receives a negative test result then you can come back to campus. If they receive a positive test result (they have COVID-19), you SHOULD NOT return to campus until the period of isolation as advised by the NHS Test and Trace team is over. You should keep your course leader informed of this.
If someone in your household is well but has been told to isolate because they have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 outside the house, you should still attend campus as normal. Only if that person starts to develop symptoms should you stay at home and follow the advice above. Please keep your course leader involved throughout.
