National COVID-19 restrictions have been replaced by public health advice on living with respiratory infections. As such, the university no longer has any specific guidelines relating to COVID-19. However, the health and wellbeing of everybody in the UCA community is always a priority and therefore we would encourage you to consider the following:


Vaccination is free and available to everyone over 5 years of age, regardless of nationality or immigration status.  Booking a COVID-19 vaccination is quick and easy. Head over to the NHS website to book online.

We wholeheartedly encourage everyone in our community to get fully vaccinated, including the autumn booster if you are eligible. Please click here for more information about the autumn booster.


Make use of mechanical or natural ventilation to let fresh air in if meeting, studying or working indoors, particularly in more crowded areas. You can improve natural ventilation by fully or partly opening windows, air vents and doors. But do not prop fire doors open. Even 10 minutes an hour can help increase the amount of fresh air, depending on the size of the room.

Face coverings

The university does not require the wearing of face masks but supports anybody who wishes to do so. In particular you may wish to consider wearing a face covering in crowded or enclosed spaces.
