Coronavirus advice and support

Welcome to our coronavirus (Covid-19) information pages. Here you can find the answers to frequently asked questions for both current and prospective residents, and links to further information, resources and support.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this difficult and unsettling time as we work to support our residents, colleagues and prospective residents. These pages are updated regularly, but please check the Public Health England website for the latest official advice as the situation is changing rapidly. 


The Government has announced a move to a Tier 2 (high) alert level for COVID-19 for the London area from 16 October. Our buildings and outdoor spaces remain open and face-to-face teaching is continuing as planned. However, there are three important rules that you must follow: 

  1. It is illegal to socialise indoors, at home or in public, with anyone outside of your household. In halls, this means anyone that you share a kitchen or bathroom with.
  2. The Government’s ‘Rule of 6’ applies to gatherings outdoors. This means it is illegal to meet in groups of more than six people.
  3. You must not travel to any areas in the Tier 3 (very high) alert level for COVID-19.
