Guidance for students.
We want to work with our student community to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to ensure that government guidance on local restrictions in place Newcastle are adhered to. Newcastle University is committed to supporting students through any periods of self-isolation.
From 28 September 2020 people in England are required to self-isolate by law if they test positive for COVID-19 or contacted by NHS Test and Trace. Police have a wide range of powers to implement these rules, including fines of up to £10,000 for repeat offences.
All students at registration are required to sign a Student Declaration, confirming their agreement to follow reasonable measures implemented by the University in 2020/21 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Failure to follow these measures could lead to disciplinary action by the University and even expulsion.
You should let us know as soon as possible if you are having to self-isolate by completing this online form.
