From Thursday 20 January we are asking students to continue to wear face coverings in all areas of campus including teaching spaces.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and the wider community remains of the highest priority to us. We've worked hard to make everyone feel safe and confident about being on campus. Please respect other students and staff by following the guidance and signage when you see it.

We continue to prioritise students’ educational outcomes and experiences, making available our full range of social and learning facilities onsite – including our student support, libraries, study spaces, catering, bars and sport and leisure facilities 

We work closely with public health officials in Leeds and respond to recommendations they make to influence local transmission rates. If local outbreak levels are high we may be required to implement additional control measures on campus and will keep you updated of any changes. We may be required by law to change our plans and introduce restrictions. We have plans in place to enable the continual progress of student studies.

We ask all students to follow government guidance to help play their part in stopping the spread of Covid-19 and encourage all students who are eligible to get vaccinated. 

Students and staff should test before they return to university, and before coming on to campus.

Book your vaccine

Students and staff from all universities and higher education institutions in Leeds can now book a Coronavirus (COVID-19) booster jab or their first dose of the vaccine at the vaccination centre in Old Broadcasting House, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds. The centre is open on Tuesday 25 and Friday 28 January from 10am to 5pm each day. Walk-in appointments are available or book an appointment in advance. The centre will be using the Moderna vaccine.

Your first dose of the vaccine or  booster vaccine can be given at the centre, and you do not need to confirm which when you book.  If you need to book a second vaccine please visit the NHS Coronavirus vaccination website. To book, and for more information about what to bring for your appointment, visit here
