Do I have to go home over the winter break?

No. We know that some students may not want to or may not be able to go home over the winter break. For those who do, the UK Government is strongly advising that students make any travel arrangements within the indicated travel window. The information we provide should help you to make an informed choice about if, and when you decide to travel home for the winter break.

Anyone who remains at University after 9th December 2020 will risk having to undertake a period of isolation of up to 14 days if you contract Coronavirus, or are identified as a contact of someone who had. This would mean that you would not be able to travel home for the end of term break.
