How you can play your part 

Before you arrive on campus 

If you’re feeling at all unwell, you must stay at home.  

Before coming to campus, download the free NHS COVID-19 app to protect yourself and others.  

The app lets you know if you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and can also be used to check into a venue, order a test and register a positive or negative test result.  

Even if you don’t have COVID-19 symptoms, make sure that you test yourself twice a week using a rapid lateral flow test (LFT). Around one in three people infected with COVID-19 do not experience symptoms, which means they can still pass it on to others including those who could become seriously unwell if they catch the virus.

Make sure you report your status through UCL Connect to Protect to let us know: if you have symptoms of coronavirus, if you need to self-isolate, when you receive the results of a coronavirus test, or if you're a student and you are or will be quarantining after returning to the UK.

If you are not yet vaccinated, please get your first or second dose as soon as possible

Once you arrive on campus 

You’ll notice several measures are in place to help keep our community safe on campus, such as the regular cleaning of buildings and ventilation of spaces

Let’s all do our part to stay safe on campus – together, we can make a difference. Visit our Coronavirus Information Hub for more information about the safety measures we’re putting in place on campus and what you can do to help keep everyone safe.
