Summer term arrangements

The Government has confirmed that from 17 May all students can return to in-person teaching. For many students, teaching has already ended for the term so rather than joining teaching activities, many students will be completing their assessments.

For taught postgraduate students who started university in January, teaching is continuing and you will be contacted by your School about arrangements for in-person teaching.

If you are travelling back to university, you are encouraged to take a test before travelling through your local community testing programme or by ordering a free test online.

As we continue to reopen services, activities and plan our next steps, our priority continues to be providing safe working environments for our students and staff.

More information is available on the summer term arrangements section of this website.

Testing arrangements

If you don’t have any coronavirus symptoms, students are asked to book a free and fast asymptomatic lateral flow test on campus. These tests are also available to staff who need to work on campus.

Book a COVID-19 test (if the booking system is displaying a ‘server busy’ message, please refresh your browser and try again in five minutes).

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you must not book an asymptomatic test or attend campus. Instead, you must stay at home and book a test through the NHS Test and Trace Service.

Home Test Collections

From 25 May, you can collect home test kits from a collection point at the south entrance to LUU. Opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday (9am-2pm) and Tuesday, Thursday (1pm-6pm).

You will need to wear face covering and basic personal details will be required (name and phone number) and each box contains 7 tests, with all the instructions provided.

We recommend that people should have 3 tests at the test centre before converting to home testing.

Please note, collection is not available on Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June due to the University being closed.

Supporting students and staff

If you are a student or member of staff, let us know if you are self-isolating or have tested positive for coronavirus so we can support you.

Please see our information about how we can support you if you test positive for coronavirus or need to self-isolate.

If you need to self-isolate or receive a positive test result, you must let the University know by emailing, visiting our reporting COVID webpage or calling 0113 3438777. If you live in University accommodation please also report to them that you are self-isolating.

Find out how we can work together to stay safe.

Working arrangements for staff

We expect the majority of staff to continue to work remote remotely from the UK while social distancing remains in force.

Staff asked to carry out work on campus or able to resume research on campus will receive appropriate notification.
