How do I inform the University if I or somebody I know, has tested positive for Covid-19, is shielding or self-isolating?

Guidance on the steps to take to inform the University if you have tested positive for Covid-19 and need support.

Any student who has tested positive for Covid-19 and is shielding or self-isolating will need to let us know by completing this form so that we can support them. 

You can complete the form on someone’s behalf if they are unable to do it themselves.

If you are completing the form on behalf of someone else you will need to know the student name, student number, and a contact telephone number before being able to complete the form. 

Important notice:

You should let us know as soon as possible if you are having to self-isolate by completing this online form.

If you have an urgent need that cannot wait until the next working day (Monday-Friday) – call us:

  • Between 10am and 4pm (Monday - Friday) and 11am - 2pm (Saturday and Sunday) call the COVID Enquiry Line on 0191 222 5101

Outside of these hours call Security on 0191 208 6817 (available 24/7)
