Students talking while wearing face coverings on campus

All COVID legal restrictions have now come to an end in England. In line with the College, we are adopting a public health approach that we believe will keep our students and staff safe, and ensure we can continue teaching, undertaking research and running our operations, enabling us to benefit from the return to activity on campus.

What should I do if I have coronavirus symptoms or have tested positive?

To help control the spread of respiratory infections within the College and to keep our community safe, anyone showing symptoms or testing positive should not attend campus.

What steps is the College taking to protect staff and student health and safety?

We encourage all staff and students to continue to take regular COVID tests before coming on to campus and to report the results. While no longer used for contact tracing purposes, reporting your results will help us continue to manage case levels in our community and ensure we adopt the appropriate safety measure.  

We encourage all members of our community to continue wearing face coverings in most indoor settings on campus, including teaching spaces. Requirements may differ in some areas of our campuses, in line with local risk assessments.

How can I help slow the spread of COVID-19?

We are very strongly encouraging vaccination, including boosters. Vaccination is free for everyone in the UK, including international students. Find out more about booking vaccinations and boosters on the NHS website.

Can I gain access to Business School buildings?

Our campuses remain open and we continue to move safely towards removing capacity constraints within our teaching and examination spaces, taking into account the best way to deliver teaching.

What testing facilities are available for students and staff on campus?

As part of the government's plan, routine contact tracing ended on 24 February 2022 . For the remainder of this term, Imperial's COVID-19 Contact Tracing Hub will continue to provide support and advice to staff and students regarding the management of COVID.
