Student experience

What spaces are open on campus?

Remember, you will need to continue to follow the existing Covid safety measures in all indoor spaces, which means you are expected to maintain social distancing, regularly sanitise your hands and wear a face covering, unless you are exempt.

If you have a disability that means that you are exempt from wearing a face covering, you can find out how the University is supporting the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme here.

Please maintain 2m social distancing when you eat or drink as you will need to remove your face covering.

Online events

Online events are a great way to experience the social side of University life and meet with a wider group of people. You can find upcoming digital events online:

Even if you’re not self-isolating, you might enjoy our six ideas of things to do during self-isolation. You'll find ways of connecting, improving your skills and staying entertained.

Get some fresh air

You can exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people you live with, your support bubble, or one person from another household. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area. Meeting people outdoors remains the least risky way to socialise.

If you live on campus, why not try one of our campus walks, including our Sculpture Trail? You might even find parts of campus you didn't know existed. Or maybe take walk or cycle along the Kenilworth Cycle Way from campus.
