How is UCL responding to coronavirus cases on campus? 

UCL has plans in place to respond to reported cases of coronavirus, including notifying other staff and students, cleaning affected areas and reviewing access to buildings on campus. We are following guidance from the UK Government, together with advice from UCL’s world-leading researchers. Find out more about the university’s planned response to coronavirus cases.

What to do if you think you may have coronavirus or you’re self-isolating 

If you’re a UCL student or member of staff, please follow our step-by-step guidance if: 

  • you have symptoms of coronavirus;
  • you need to self-isolate;

How UCL is supporting students who are self-isolating 

Our Student Support and Wellbeing team is in regular contact with students who are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, have tested positive or are self-isolating to provide advice, practical help and wellbeing support. All students can access support from UCL’s Student Support and Wellbeing services to help look after their mental health and wellbeing. More information is available on our Students webpages

Students self-isolating in UCL accommodation

Additional support is available to students in UCL Accommodation. Find out more in our guide to quarantine and self-isolation.

We are also working closely with intercollegiate halls to support the UCL students staying there.

How UCL is supporting staff who are self-isolating 

UCL is committed to supporting colleagues who may have coronavirus or need to self-isolate. Please visit our Human Resources webpages for more information about how we can help, including what to do if you need to take time off work. 

UCL staff can also access free, confidential support through Care First, UCL’s Employee Assistance Programme, including one-off emotional support, counselling sessions and access to specialists who can provide practical advice. 

We've set up the Making Hybrid Work hub to help answer questions staff may have about returning to work on campus, be a place for recent communications, and support staff with a range of services and advice.
