Returning to campus

We aim to have fully reopened campus ahead of the next academic year - with around 25% of staff back on site working at any one time, in a safe and socially distanced way. Individual departments have a vital role to play in the process over the coming months. To support this, we have updated our resources for managers including updated guidance, resources, checklists and our new Campus Opening Guide. 

Campus Opening Guide 

Before each site opens, the Head of Department and the local leadership team must familiarise themselves with the Campus Opening Guide (UCL log in required), which will be provided by the Estates team. The guide explains the process of reopening our buildings step-by-step, sets out the roles and responsibilities of the teams involved, and has information about what our new working environment will look like to share with your team.

Policies and guidance to support staff

Signage, posters and digital materials

UCL has created a suite of materials to support departments when their staff return to campus. These include signage for the one-way system on campus; markers to show which desks can be used safely at a distance; and posters and leaflets to let your colleagues know what UCL is doing to keep them safe and how they can make a difference. 

To help people recognise the campaign wherever it appears on campus and make sure our messages have the most impact, it's important that you use the designs below rather than creating your own versions. You can choose which materials you need from the pdf files and purchase them from the suppliers we’ve listed, who will deliver them directly to your department.


The file below includes pull up banners, directional arrows, no exit and desk signs. These materials are available to order from Orbital Signs. Get in touch with John Wood at johnwood@orbitalsigns.co.uk or call 07887 575821. John can also arrange a survey of your buildings and recommend which signage you need to help people navigate the space safely. 

Posters and building guide

Nine posters about keeping safe on campus, which can be printed at A4 or A3 size. These materials are available to order from Belmont Press. Get in touch with David Gowler at d.gowler@belmont.co.uk or call 01604 596506 / 07850 209254.
