Reporting a positive COVID-19 test or self-isolation

We are all working to keep our campus as safe as possible, to protect each other and the NHS.

To help us to look after the wellbeing of our staff and students please report any positive cases or self-isolation. Knowing how many staff and students are off ill or self-isolating means we are better able to make decisions to support our students in their studies.

This information also means we can make timely decisions on any changes to service provision which may be needed if significant numbers of staff aren’t able to work.

  • Direct them to our FAQs
  • Make sure the student reports using the online form
