Covid-19 – information for students, staff and visitors

Student life may feel a little different at the moment, but we've been working hard to ensure our students receive the excellent education and fulfilling student experience Kingston University is proud to provide.

We've put plenty of measures in place to make our campuses as safe as possible. These include increased cleaning and a number of hand sanitising stations in our buildings, while we have also installed screens and clear signage across all our sites.

Face coverings must be worn in all campus buildings and staff and students are asked to keep a distance of at least one metre, preferably two, at all times when on site.

As changing government restrictions are introduced, we remain committed to ensuring our students continue to receive a high quality education while keeping as safe as possible.

Update: New national lockdown comes into effect

The government has announced it is implementing another national lockdown in England to tackle the spread of coronavirus.

Under the restrictions, all students and non-essential staff should stay at home. All teaching will be taking place online. The only exceptions are for healthcare subjects, social work and teacher training, where students will be able to access teaching on campus. The government has advised the current restrictions are likely to last until at least mid-February.

Our Town House and Kingston Hill libraries will remain open and we will continue to review arrangements as more government guidance emerges.

Further updates will be shared with our students, staff and the wider community as soon as they become available.
