If I need to quarantine on arrival, is there anything additional I should pack?

Information on what to pack.

If you need to take medication, make sure that you bring enough medication to cover you for both the 14 days of quarantine and for an additional period in the event that you become ill whilst you are self-isolating.

Students in University accommodation will not be able to use the laundry facilities whilst they are self-isolating, so bring enough clothes for your 14 day quarantine period. 

As you are going to be isolation for 14 days, we recommend that you bring things to keep yourself entertained. Why not download your favourite movies or boxsets? You could also pack books or download a podcast and learn a language.
