Helping provide a Covid-secure environment

We have many measures in place on our campuses to help ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors, while still maintaining the excellent education and fulfilling student experience that Kingston University is proud to provide.

When a member of our community tests positive

When a member of the University community tests positive, they must self-isolate in line with government guidelines. Please use the instructions for staff, and the instructions for students if you have symptoms.

NHS Test and Trace, supported by the University, will advise any close contacts to also self-isolate if necessary. Staff and students are asked to notify the University of self-isolation and Covid-19 tests - use these instructions for staff and instructions for students.

If you need to self-isolate

Staff and students are asked to notify the University of self-isolation – use these instructions for staff and instructions for students – and follow the government guidance.

Support for self-isolating students

The University provides support to students self-isolating in halls or in local private accommodation through the concierge service –

The service is able to provide food parcels and cleaning products, help with prescription collections, and will be able to check on students regularly to ensure they have essentials.

At all times, students have access to our support services for any health, wellbeing, money or other advice.
