Covid Etiquette

During these tough Covid times we want everyone to stay well and we want to thank you for all you are doing to help keep us all safe.

We recognise the challenges associated with some of the different approaches and interventions in place, to ensure that the campus is both a safe and welcoming place to study and work. To support this colleagues in the University and student union sabbatical officers have been working together to draw up some COVID-19 Etiquette Key Messages and associated guidance.

Please make yourself aware of these and help us all to act safely, responsibly and respectfully in university environments, both on campus and online.
