Covid-secure campuses

As the new academic year gets underway, we're working hard to create Covid-secure campuses and manage the risk of coronavirus transmission.

Our Vice Chancellor outlines the steps we've taken in his Open Letter.

We've put a number of measures in place to help keep our students, staff and the wider community safe on campus. You'll find full details below, along with practical information on travelling to campus, social distancing, and maintaining good hygiene.

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

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