What should I do if I test positive for Covid?

If you test positive for Covid-19 you need to self-isolate even if you are feeling ok. This means staying in your accommodation and avoiding contact with others to minimise the risk of spreading the infection.

Please contact our Wellbeing team via this form so we can ensure you have all the support you need

 If you need academic support you can contact your Academic School.
