Housekeeping rules


We encourage you to demonstrate two negative COVID tests over a seven day period before coming onto campus.

You can order home testing kits from the Government website. You can also visit any SMART test centre in Liverpool.

If you have COVID symptoms

If you have any of the following COVID symptoms, please do not come onto campus:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell

If you have any of those symptoms, stay at home and arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 by following the UK Government and NHS guidance.

Face coverings

You must wear face coverings (unless you are exempt) in all communal areas and teaching spaces, but can be removed whilst you are at your desk.


Hand sanitiser stations are available in all buildings for you to use.

Our enhanced cleaning programme and ventilation procedures will continue to be in place to help keep our campus spaces safe and clean.

Fresh air. The flow of air is important, if a window is open where you are working, please do not close it, this has been opened intentionally. Try to keep doors and windows open to allow ventilation (but remember to shut them when you’re leaving).

Building guidance

Whilst we have taken away the majority of our COVID-19 signage, directional advice is still in place.

As good practice, we continue to encourage the mantra of hands, face, space – although in line with current Government advice, social distancing is no longer mandatory on campus.
