When you arrive in the UK, you will not be allowed to leave the place where you’re staying for the first 14 days you’re in the UK (known as ‘self-isolating’) unless you’re arriving from an exempt country:
To check if you do not have to isolate for 14 days on arrival in the UK, please visit the Coranivirus (Covid-19): Travel Corridors webpages.
If you are arriving from a country that requires you to self isolate for 14 days, you can book temporary accommodation to self-isolate on campus. This is subject to availability, and you will be charged the en suite room rate, view more information on this here.
You will not be able to use the pickup service if your accommodation on arrival is off-campus.
How to self-isolate
You should self-isolate in one place for the full 14 days, where you can have food and other necessities delivered, and should stay away from others unless you travelled to the UK with them. You must self-isolate at the address you provided on the public health passenger locator form.
This can include:
- your own home
- staying with friends or family
- a hotel or other temporary accommodation
You should not have visitors, including friends and family, unless they are providing emergency assistance.
You cannot go out to work or school or visit public areas.
You should not go shopping. If you require help buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, you should ask friends or relatives or order a delivery.
You cannot go outside to exercise.
You must not leave self-isolation to collect your BRP - if you are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon your arrival in the UK, you are exempt from this requirement and must not come to collect the BRP during this time. Please collect your BRP once you finish self-isolating from the 15th day onwards.
You can find more information on self-isolation rules in the UK on the government webpage.
Studying during self-isolation
You can still engage with your studies and support services remotely during your self-isolation (quarantine) period.
