Can I return home now or do I need to wait until the travel window?

In order to reduce any Covid-19 transmission risk, all students should continue to observe the current national lockdown restrictions, which advise everyone to stay at their current residence, except for specific exceptions. This means students should not leave their term-time address to return home between now and 2nd December 2020.

The UK Government has outlined its commitment to ensure that students who have been living away from home are able to return home at the end of term, if they choose to do so. Newcastle University will continue to work with the Government, the local authority and other local universities to plan how our students can travel home safely, should you choose to do so, ahead of the winter break.
