Staying safe on campus

The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our top priority. This event has been planned and will be conducted in line with the University’s COVID-19 measures. These will be continuously reviewed in the lead up to the Open Day and if required we may have to amend our schedule of activities to remain compliant with Government guidance. Should we need to do this we will notify all visitors in advance. You can help us by also following these guidelines:

  • Please conduct a Lateral Flow Test before travelling to campus.
  • Please wear a face mask in crowded spaces.
  • Please do not travel to campus if you feel unwell or have any symptoms.

We will ensure that hand sanitiser stations are available at multiple points on each of our campuses and encourage all guests to utilise them.
