Safe and inclusive campuses

We've worked hard to create safe and inclusive campuses - managing the risk of coronavirus transmission.

This included putting a number of measures in place to help keep our students, staff and the wider community safe on campus. These measures have been in place since September 2020 - and while restrictions are easing, we continue to encourage you to wear a face covering (unless you’re exempt) when in our campus buildings. You'll find full details below, along with practical information on respecting personal space, maintaining good hygiene, and travelling to campus.

If you're joining at ARU this year, or you're a returning student, check our student FAQs for general information about study arrangements, university accommodation and more.

You can also see how we'll support you, if you need to self-isolate at any time.

We know that coronavirus has affected everyone in different ways, so if you have any worries or concerns about studying at university, our Counselling and Wellbeing Service is here to help.
