Please note, the figures are published every Monday for the previous week. These figures include all staff and students, including those who live outside Kingston. Therefore, no assumptions should be made about where the virus might have been contracted.
These figures are new confirmed Covid-19 cases reported to the University by our staff and students. They include students who are in University halls of residence or in private accommodation.
The University has approximately 2,000 members of staff and 16,800 students.
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 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.
The University provides support to students self-isolating in halls or in local private accommodation through the concierge service – firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
