We understand this is a challenging time for our staff community and we want to make sure you have access to the support and guidance you need. We will keep you informed of the latest information by email - in the COVID-19 updates and messages from the President and Provost - as well as via the website. You can see the archive of messages to staff, students and alumni.

This page includes information on HR guidance, returning to campus, working remotely, safety, wellbeing, research, and other guidance including on travel.

Rethinking the workplace – returning to campus

This page includes findings and recommendations from the Return to Campus working group, and how you can have your say on the future of how we work at Imperial. 


All who can work from home will need to continue to do so until at least June 2021, and we want to make sure you have the resources and support you need.
