Your safety

The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to us and in order to observe social distancing and appropriate behaviour on campus, we have made sure that our university is COVID-safe. All university buildings have COVID-specific directions and have a clearly marked out one-way systems with advice signposted throughout.

We have increased our cleaning rotas and have cleaning materials and hand sanitisers at stations around all campus sites. 

You can only access LJMU buildings if you are wearing a face covering (unless exempt for medical reasons). 

We have adapted all LJMU buildings to introduce a range of additional measures to keep us all safe and well.

We have free, reusable LJMU face coverings available for all students. If you do not have one, please ask at a reception desk.

If there are queues outside buildings and it rains, our marshals will supply umbrellas that you can return at the door on entry and which will then be cleaned for next use.

The city has introduced a one-way system around the main shopping destinations and at particularly busy locations. We have been working with our city counterparts to make sure that it is COVID-safe for everyone in Liverpool.

Please note: LJMU is now a cashless campus – all payments must be made with cards this includes all catering outlets and vending machines.


We have a team of marshals in place across the university to support you. There are marshals at each LJMU building and they are here to help you move safely around our buildings and offer any assistance you may need.

View the site marshalling plans for each campus area below. These show the access and exit points, holding areas and staff entrances.

Please note: marshals will knock on the door if a class appears to be over-running.
