We are continually inspired by the dedication, spirit and effectiveness of our community working remotely and admire your resilience as we all continue to deliver and support the College’s mission"
Professor Alice Gast
Everyone has been doing an incredible job working from home whenever possible and supporting our students, clinical work, essential research and volunteer activity.
To keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing we will only be able to accommodate those who absolutely must be on campus. Everyone who can work from home must remain working from home. At this stage we believe that this will be necessary at least until the end of the calendar year. This will be revisited as government and other guidance changes.
We want to make sure that if you are working from home, you have the resources and support you need.
Working from home adds to the challenge of maintaining and managing good mental health. It's more important than ever to prioritise self-care for your mental wellbeing so, set aside time to look after yourself, and stay connected with others.

- If your home working environments or arrangements are such that they are detrimental to your wellbeing or they make it extremely difficult for you to do your job, you may be able to work on campus. View the working on-site guidance
- Guidance on wellbeing when remote working from our occupational health team
We will soon be launching a campaign called Imperial@Home to help staff share tips on working from home, positive experiences they have had - as well as the pitfalls. If you'd like to take part, please complete this short form to tell us about your experiences.
We recommend you set up a space at home, and if possible, not your bedroom. This will help you switch off later. The following resources will help you set yourself up for success:
