What is a quarantine/self-isolation buddy?

Information and guidance on how you can get a quarantine support buddy.

For students in private accommodation we have a group of quarantine buddies who are available to support you whilst you isolate. This will be with calls via Teams and activities online. 

Our ResLife team will be able to help you organise regular calls from a quarantine buddy for students in University accommodation. 

We understand that moving to a new country and having to quarantine/self-isolate for 14 days will be a challenging time and our buddies will be there to give you support and welcome you to Newcastle – virtually!  

Important notice:

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