How we’re keeping our community safe
We're closely following the latest government guidelines to keep our community safe.
What to expect on campus
Here are the measures in place to keep our community safe.
We strongly encourage all staff and students who are able to, to take up the offer of both doses of the vaccine and any booster doses.
You are not legally required to wear a face covering. Please respect others' choices to wear face coverings.
Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health: Guidelines on the wearing of face masks will continue to be led by departments, in discussion with clinical colleagues.
The EFM Engineering team has undertaken an assessment of all the spaces where mechanical ventilation and natural ventilation is located. Mechanical ventilation is maintained throughout the University to current national standards.
Thanks to the changes that have been programmed for air handling units across campus, ventilation systems are now supplying the maximum amount of fresh air possible to the buildings.
Where windows can be opened, we encourage staff and students to do so to enable natural ventilation. Doors can also be held open to facilitate natural ventilation. The exception to this is fire doors, which must remain closed, unless they have proprietary hold-open devices, to enable them to automatically close in the event of a fire alarm activation.
Some perspex screens and signage will remain in place on campus where beneficial.
Throughout the past year, our community has demonstrated its commitment and ability to come together as One University to overcome the challenges of the pandemic. As we start to adjust to this different, yet familiar, way of working we would ask that you remain mindful and respectful, acknowledging that everyone’s circumstances and experiences will differ.
