Returning to university

LJMU Moving Forward Together

Ensuring a safe return to LJMU this autumn

Latest updates on the new academic year

Page last updated: 25 September 12:40

The university has now moved the majority of face to face teaching on-line as a response to the latest COVID restrictions. There are exceptions for some courses, but students should only attend on site if they are invited onto campus by their academic team at the university who will be in touch.

Libraries will remain open with bookable spaces available for students who wish to access these resources.

All students must have their LJMU ID card with them and marshals will direct them whilst on are on campus. Please remember all students and staff must wear a face-covering whilst on site.

Liverpool restrictions

The local lockdown restrictions that are in place in Liverpool from 22 September mean that staff and students must not socialise with other people outside of their own households or support bubble in private homes and gardens; only use public transport for essential purposes, such as travelling to school or work; and, avoid attending amateur and semi-professional sporting events as spectators. In addition, late night restriction of operating hours will be introduced, with leisure and entertainment venues required to close between 10pm to 5am and hospitality for food and drink will be restricted to table service only.

These changes are in addition to the nationwide six-person limit on social gatherings that came into force on Monday 14 September.

LJMU Tier Model

The four tier model developed by DfE to manage COVID-19 safe environments has been adopted by the university and is designed to help frame our organisational response to what is a changing and dynamic set of challenges. View the LJMU Tier Model.
