Updated arrangements for summer term 2021
Book a COVID-19 test
The University is providing asymptomatic lateral flow testing for all students. You can only take a test if you have no symptoms of COVID-19. Book a free asymptomatic test online.
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you must not book an asymptomatic test – instead, you must stay at home and book a free test online, or call 119 if without internet access.
Let us know if you are self-isolating or test positive
Let us know if you are self-isolating or have tested positive for coronavirus so we can support you. Read our information and advice on support available if you experience coronavirus symptoms, test positive, or are required to follow government guidance to self-isolate.
Working together to stay safe
Please see our guidelines to help us work together to stay safe. This includes guidance on social distancing, face coverings and information about teaching in the 2020/21 academic year.
Plans for student education for this academic year
We’re carefully following government guidance in all our arrangements for student education. The safety of our students and staff remains our priority. Arrangements for this academic year and the latest coronavirus advice can be found in our communications to students and postgraduate researchers.
Applicants and offer holders
If you’re an applicant or offer holder please visit our coronavirus information FAQs tailored to you. This includes if you’re in the final year of your undergraduate degree but you are applying for a Masters with us. We also have information for postgraduate researcher applicants and offer holders.
For those who live in University accommodation, we’re also taking measures to ensure you feel safe and confident about your home, including the provision of a more frequent and thorough cleaning regime, clear signage and hand sanitiser stations. We have a staggered and contactless arrivals process, effective social distancing measures and a programme of virtual events, so that you’ll be able to meet people and socialise in a safe way. Our experienced accommodation team will also be available to help you, offering advice and support to keep you safe and well.
If you are moving into private accommodation, LUU has provided a range of advice to help you do this safely. LUU’s Help and Support team are also available to answer any questions you may have about your move.
The University takes your health and wellbeing extremely seriously, and we have been following the Government’s guidance for all citizens on social distancing to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). You must follow the Government’s rules on social distancing.
Students with underlying health conditions
Please see the NHS advice for people at higher risk.
Please make sure you are registered with a local doctor. Most students choose to register with the Leeds Student Medical Practice (LSMP) which is near the University campus.
