Advice and guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the latest information on the University's position, whether the University is open, whether anyone on campus has coronavirus, the symptoms of the virus and more.

Coming to campus

You can now visit the campus from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday for all your academic needs including the Library.

The Gateway is available for walk-in appointments from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

You can still book an appointment to see the Health and Wellbeing team, Careers and Employability and Student Engagement. To do this, head to Compass or call our helpful staff on 020 7531 7333 from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Face coverings are no longer mandatory on campus, but they are strongly recommended in crowded spaces including the corridors and meeting points.

If you experience any issues with your studies, please contact our Student Engagement team who will be able to advise on the support we can offer and options available to you.

You shouldn’t visit the building if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been told to self-isolate through NHS Test and Trace.

Please note: Calls to The Gateway, The Library and Reception are recorded for training and quality purposes. Read more (.pdf)


Most courses will be delivered as a combination of online lectures, seminars, and workshops with timetabled teaching and other activities on campus.
