When do I need to self isolate?

Under the latest Government guidance, you are no longer required to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid-19 or develop Covid symptoms, however you are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with others for at least five full days.

If you test positive for Covid, please avoid coming onto campus and report any positive Covid cases to us to allow us to identify any local outbreaks.


Report : If you have tested positive for Covid-19 please let us know by using our reporting form.

Urgent help: If you have an urgent need that cannot wait until the next working day you should call Security on 0191 208 6817 (available 24/7).

Covid support: If you have a Covid-19 related enquiry, you can contact us by email covidsupport@ncl.ac.uk or the Student Services Line on 0191 208 3333. For updated operating hours please see this page
