Covid-19 Travel Restrictions
There has been lots of confusion over the lockdown rules for returning to your student accommodation after Christmas. The government has published guidance for students about returning to student accommodation which we have summarised below:
- If your course has resumed face-to-face teaching you can return to your student accommodation and you are advised to get an asymptomatic test on campus when you move back.
- If your course hasn’t resumed face-to-face teaching you are encouraged to remain at your vacation accommodation. However, if you need to travel back you can, but you should not move back and forward between the two. Again, if you return you are advised to get an asymptomatic test.
- International students returning to student accommodation from overseas will need to follow the entry requirements for the UK.
