Like many other universities, Newman University is operating a ‘1 metre plus’ set up on campus. This means you should stay at least one metre away from someone else and if you are less than 2 metres from someone, where possible there should be another protective measure such as the wearing of face-coverings or a perspex screen. The safety and well-being of our students, staff and community is our priority. More information about teaching and learning arrangements on campus can be found on our studying at Newman page.

Students who are able to, are expected to take lateral flow (LFD) tests twice weekly on the week before they return to university and every week of September after that. This can be done at the on-campus ATS (asymptomatic test site), with free tests available for collection from the Newman University security office, supermarkets, train stations or pharmacies or sent to you from the NHS test ordering website.

A full and detailed corporate University Risk Assessment is available on the Covid-19 Helpful Policies and Documents page of the University intranet. Local risk assessments have been undertaken by teams and business units.
