Health and Safety on Campus

On-campus

As part of our safety measures, we would ask that all visitors, staff and students maintain a distance of 1m throughout the event. Rooms and presentations have been set up on this basis, and we may therefore restrict numbers for some sessions. We will have sanitisation points near building entrances, regular cleaning of high-touch points and plenty of signage to remind everyone of these guidelines 

Face coverings

Following the recent Government announcement, we are requiring all visitors, students and staff to wear a face covering when moving around inside our buildings on campus, in corridors and in circulation spaces, unless exempt. You can find out more about circumstances where people may not be able to wear a face covering here.

Your risk factors

Before coming onto campus, please consider if you fall into a higher risk category for Covid-19. We have provided a link here that provides some further information on who would be considered a higher risk. Whilst we're taking measures to ensure the safety of everyone on campus, if you fall into one or more of these categories, please consider whether it is suitable for you to come along to this event. 

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms

If you have booked a place but develop Covid-19 symptoms before you are due to visit, please stay at home and do not visit our campus. Symptoms of Covid-19 can be found here.
