We are taking applications as normal.

advice for visitors

Non-student visitors are not allowed in our buildings (other than those open to the public at any given time). If family are traveling to Dartington with students, we request that they drop off their students in the car park.

We encourage all visitors to the campus to download and use the NHS Covid-19 App, and to use the app to ‘check in’ when visiting by scanning the QR code at check in points.

This means that NHS Test and Trace can contact you if, for instance, there is an outbreak linked to our premises, and provide you with appropriate public health advice.

On the Dartington estate, you can check in at the following locations:

  • The White Hart
  • The Green Table
  • Refectory (student dining area)
  • Elmhirst Library
  • Courtyard Library
  • EDT Studio
  • …plus other venues where public-facing events are taking place
