Information for students, staff and partners about the coronavirus and our response at the University of Worcester.

The World Health Organisation has labelled the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, defined as a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

Current lockdown rules

On Monday 12 April, England’s lockdown rules eased further as part of the Government’s spring roadmap. On campus this means the Hive library has fully opened again. It also means you can take part in organised activities and more catering options are now available - with a new market stall serving hot food from 11am until 2pm on the Quad outside the SU building. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the restrictions.

Everyone should continue to follow the guidelines designed to protect your own safety and wellbeing, and that of others around you. This includes following the government guidelines with regards to social distancing and the use of face coverings.

Changes to the rules from Monday 17 May

The Government has announced that all university students who have not yet returned to in-person teaching will be able to do so from 17 May. 

Our campuses are open

The Government has advised that students, such as those with inadequate study space and/or those struggling with mental health and wellbeing issues, can return to their term time address even if their teaching is still online.

You can access on-campus study spaces, catering facilities and the Hive library. You can also join in with organised sport and entertainment activities.
