Students sitting outside


LJMU 2021-2022 academic year is ‘Business as usual’ with most teaching happening face-to-face and on campus.

Here you will find information and resources about how we are working to ensure the safety of students and staff on campus.

However, there are still many safeguards and rules in place to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

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).
