It’s on each of us to play our part in keeping everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not easy, but it will be far easier if we work together! We’ve got you covered, and here’s a reminder of our five key health and safety guidelines…

1. Wear a face covering on campus

Face coverings must be worn (except by those who are exempt for medical reasons) when entering campus buildings and in all shared indoor spaces. This means in classrooms, lecture theatres, communal spaces, corridors, offices, meeting rooms, research laboratories and workshops, plus libraries. Face coverings should also be worn when travelling with others in a University owned or hired vehicle, and in other settings required by current legislation.

Please make sure your face covering covers both your mouth and your nose.


2. Wash your hand regularly

We have installed sanitising stations with hand sanitisers across our campus, including at the entrance to buildings.

3. Maintain at least 2m social distance

In addition to the 2m meter guidelines and in line with Government guidance, please do not form groups of more than 6 people outside of teaching spaces.

4. Follow the one way systems and safety signage across campus

Keep an eye out for the health and safety signage across campus. It’s bright pink so you cannot miss it!

5. Download the SafeZone app

If you’re coming onto campus or staying in Halls, please use the SafeZone app to help protect our campus and Residence community. The app is easy to download on your phone and you need to enter your LSBU email address before logging using your normal LSBU credentials (email address and password). Download the app

We #LoveLSBU and we’re proud of our community, so thank you to everyone who has already pulled together to follow the safety measures in place.

We now all need to continue to act safely and responsibly during these unusual times. If we do this we will help keep our friends, family, classmates and neighbours safe.

COVID testing

We will be offering COVID testing for all students who are coming on to campus. The tests that we will be doing are called lateral flow antigen testing that offer a quick turn around of results. It is important to note that these tests are for people who DO NOT have symptoms of COVID - if you have symptoms please self-isolate in line with the latest Government advice.

You can book a test on our booking facility. You can find out more about the testing process here.

We will update this page as guidance changes. For students and staff, please also check your LSBU email for the very latest news and advice.
