Covid-19: Guidance for affected students & staff

I’ve tested positive for Covid-19, or I’m experiencing symptoms, or a close contact of somebody with Covid-19 – what do I do?

Please contact the Welcome Centre on a Covid-19 reporting hotline between the hours of 8am and 8pm on 01803 847019 or email if you:

  • are self-isolating as a close contact or
  • are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms or
  • have a Positive LFD or PCR test result.

Anybody experiencing Covid-19 symptoms must self-isolate immediately – we recommend you return home if you can do so safely and without using public transport. It is important that if you are symptomatic that you take a PCR test as soon as possible.

If someone in your shared accommodation has symptoms, you must self-isolate unless you are fully vaccinated (with the second dose received a minimum of 14 days before) – please follow UK Government guidance.


If you ever have a positive LFD or PCR test result please tell us by calling 01803 847019 (8am-8pm) or by emailing us – follow NHS guidance and self-isolate as instructed or call 111.
