Find out how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus with the latest government guidance on COVID-19.

Working on campus

Whilst the Government is no longer advising that people work from home, please continue with the following working arrangements until your line manager informs you otherwise.

Staff involved in any of the following activities should continue working on campus as normal:

  • Face-to-face teaching
  • Conducting research on campus, including postgraduate researchers
  • Supporting teaching and learning activities
  • Supporting the student experience and providing campus services, for example cleaning and security, medical services, mental health and wellbeing services, libraries, catering, student residences and sports facilities, or because of another agreed reason to work on campus.

Colleagues who are not involved in delivering any of the activities above are asked to work from home where possible.

If home working is not possible, either because the activity can only be done on campus, because of the environment individuals are working in at home, equipment they need or for reasons of personal wellbeing, arrangements can be made to work from campus during this period.

Face coverings

The face coverings guidance on our working together to stay safe page reflects the latest guidance and expectations of staff, students and postgraduate researchers when on campus.

Lateral Flow Testing    

Lateral flow home test kits can be collected from the LUU helpdesk or the Laidlaw, Edward Boyle, Brotherton and Health Sciences libraries. Supply is limited, so please only take what you need. Kits are also available from local pharmacies or they can be ordered online from the GOV.UK website.


COVID-19 vaccines are effective. They can keep you from getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 and can also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. We encourage all students, both UK and international, to take a vaccine.

Visit our COVID-19 vaccination information for more.

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 reportcovid@leeds.ac.uk, 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.
