Keeping safe on campus

Welcome to our dedicated website where you can find the latest information about what we’re doing to protect our staff and students and how you can help keep campus as safe as possible.

UCL is currently closed to the public and our staff and students are currently working and studying remotely, except for a very small number of buildings and research areas. We’re aiming to reopen our campus ahead of the 2020/21 academic year, with around 25% of staff back on site at any one time, working in a safe and socially distanced way. Please see our live updates page for details about our current status and our roadmap outlining how we are planning to return to campus. For the time being, we continue to encourage all staff and students to work remotely where possible. 

We are putting a range of measures in place to protect you when you do return to campus, including reducing the number of people in spaces to 25% of capacity, introducing temperature checks and asking people to use face coverings. Find out more about how we can work together to keep our community safe and about what returning to campus will look like.

It’s clear that the challenge of returning to on-site activity requires a lot of leadership from local teams, who understand best how their working environment operates, with a central framework in place to support that leadership. Please see our resources for managers.
