Information for students

Page last updated 18/11/2020

The information on these pages brings together key information and guidance to be considered by students.

On 4 January the Prime Minister announced a new national lockdown in England. The Government guidance includes information about universities which you can read here.

The guidance allows for students who are undertaking training in the following subject areas to return to campus for in-person, on-campus learning in line with their timetable.

  • Health
  • Education
  • Social work

Researchers and research students should conduct their research from home where possible unless you need to access specialist facilities on campus.

The Government has asked all other students to remain where they are and study from their current residence wherever possible. If you have not already done so, please do not to return to Leeds or to campus. Your timetable will be updated to reflect any changes to your teaching.

We've worked hard to make sure you feel safe and confident about returning to campus. However, you should only come to campus when necessary.
You should also continue to observe the Public Health England guidance on ‘hands, face, space’ as well as any additional Covid-19 safety measures in place on campus. Please remember to follow all guidance and signage and wear face coverings where designated. All buildings are clearly marked with a one-way system and regular hand sanitisation points. Please check our 'be safe on campus' pages for more information.

Testing will be available daily at both our City and Headingley campuses from Tuesday 5 January to Sunday 14 February.

Booking is now available via MyHub.

You will be asked to book both tests when you complete the booking form. Your second test should be three days after the first and as close as possible to your first in-person, on-campus teaching.

Full FAQs are available on our website.

The Government is recommending that, where possible, all students take a free lateral flow test for Covid-19 before you return for any in-person, on campus teaching or before you use any campus facilities. It is recommended that two tests be taken, 3 days apart, as close as possible to the start of teaching. The test is for those with no symptoms. Taking the test is voluntary and is just one of the measures that we can use to stop the spread of the virus. Full FAQs are available on our website.

We are working with the Government to provide a new, free, test for Covid-19. The test is for students who are asymptomatic. This test helps you find out if you have Covid-19 but are asymptomatic and reduces the risk of you spreading the virus. Testing is available at both City and Headingley campuses. 

If you have Covid-19 symptoms you must book a test through the NHS Test and Trace Service. You should stay at your term-time address, self-isolate and inform Leeds Beckett through the online reporting form.

Please download the official NHS Covid-19 contact tracing app to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. You will see QR code posters around our campuses that you can scan using the app.
