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. There are safety measures in place across all campuses and we have advised all staff to take a lateral flow test before coming to campus, to not travel or work if they display any symptoms or feel unwell, and to wear a mask in crowded spaces. 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.
