Self isolation support
Advice and guidance
We understand that you may have questions if you or fellow students need to self-isolate. We have compiled advice on our Self Isolation Support pages and will update this in line with national and local guidance.
The page gives information on how self-isolating students can be supported to obtain essential provisions such as food, medicines and laundry facilities. It also details help and support for personal wellbeing and mental health, including financial support.
Any questions about student self-isolation can be directed to our dedicated team via email
