Guidance for staff

Leaders and managers across our University are making decisions about which colleagues are required to return to work on campus and which should continue to work from home. Some staff may be asked to do a combination of both for the time being.

Your line manager will keep in touch with you to let you know what is happening in your area and what you will be asked to do.  You should not return to campus until asked by your line manager.

Here is some information about both working on campus and working at home, but if you have any questions please speak to your line manager.

Staff who are asked to return to work on campus

If you’re asked to return to campus your line manager will talk to you about things like how many days a week you’re expected to be on campus, where you will be based and what University-wide and local measures have been put in place to ensure your safety on campus.

You can find out more about what will happen if you’re asked to return to work on campus, either because you’ve been on furlough leave or you’ve been working at home, in our frequently asked questions or look at our detailed guidance.

Before you come back to campus your manager will ask you to take a look at our online information and watch this short video to familiarise yourself with what’s new.

We all have a personal responsibility to make sure that we follow the measures which have been put in place but if you have any concerns that colleagues are not complying with these measures please speak with your line manager.

Staff who are continuing to work from home

Some staff will be asked to continue to work from home for the time being, or may be asked to do a combination of both on campus working and home working. The following guidance has been put together to help colleagues:

Some of our colleagues who have already returned to work on campus or have been working on campus during lockdown, have shared their stories and experiences to give you an insight into what it’s like:
