Coronavirus

Along with other Universities, students’ unions, and other higher education facilities around the world, The SU is responding to the evolving situation regarding the Coronavirus outbreak. As ever, our highest priority is the health and wellbeing of our students and staff, and any further action we take will be with this concern most firmly in mind. We recognise that these are exceptional circumstances – as a result of which we have been responding on a day to day basis. We will continue to update students via our website and social media channels as the situation changes.

Update from Ellie Ricks, SU President Student Experience (24 August 2021)

With the lifting of COVID-19 measures nationwide, I’ve been working hard within the SU to make sure we can all return back to a fun filled and safe student experience.

I know we have all struggled over the last year and a half and I couldn’t be happier to usher in the return to face-to-face activity around the university. Whether that be in the form of sports, societies, events or lectures, the return to ‘normal’ is underway. 

We at the SU will be expecting all of our student groups to follow the universities' guidance around mitigating the spread of covid-19 and we'll be communicating in more detail as we know more. Until then, please continue to take the necessary precautions such as twice weekly lateral flow testing, masks and hand washing when required. 

We can’t wait to see you all happy and healthy this September, see you soon!
