If you have symptoms of coronavirus COVID-19, or have had a positive test result, or are otherwise required to self-isolate, please let the University know by using the relevant form below for students or staff/others.

What must I do if I have symptoms of coronavirus or I am required to self-isolate?

It is important the University is aware as soon as possible of all suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our community of students, staff and others/visitors, and of those who are required to self-isolate. NOTE: Individuals who are identified as a contact, but are not required to self-isolate*, do not need to notify the University.  *This includes those aged under 18 years and 6 months and adults who are fully vaccinated (those who have received their final dose of an MHRA-approved vaccine in the UK vaccination programme, at least 14 days prior to contact with a positive case).

If you are unsure whether you are required to self-isolate, please contact the Health & Safety Unit before completing a notification form.

This will help us take swift action where appropriate to minimise the risk to others and enable us to liaise with external bodies such as Public Health England and local authorities to ensure that actions are effective and proportionate.

As per UK government guidelines, if you have symptoms of coronavirus then you must have a COVID-19 test and you must self-isolate whilst you are waiting for your results.  To book your free test go to https://self-referral.test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk/antigen/name

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of or change in your normal sense of taste or smell.

How do I notify the University?

Please read the relevant information below first and then follow the link to the associated form, regardless of whether you have been on campus in the last few days.

Notify us as a student

The form accessed below is for University of Greenwich students who are in the UK and attending the university in person or staying in the halls of residence and develop symptoms of Covid-19 or who have been told to isolate through the Test & Trace service.

If you are self-isolating because you have arrived in the UK and are required to quarantine in University of Greenwich student accommodation (Halls), do not complete this form. Instead, please advise Accommodation Services by completing the form on the Accommodation Portal (the same place you applied for and booked your room). You should, however, use this form to notify us if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 while self-isolating.

Students who are self-isolating because you have arrived in the UK and are not living in University of Greenwich Student Accommodation do not need to complete this form either.  You should, however, use this form to notify us if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 while self isolating.

You should also keep engaging with your programme online during your quarantine and let your tutors know when you will be able to start attending classes.

Please complete the student confirmed or suspected Covid form to submit your notification. Note: submission of this notification is not a claim for extenuating circumstances.

Notify us as staff/PhD student (and others including contractors and visitors to campus)

Staff and PhD students – using the form accessed below, notify the University of self-isolation for any reason (COVID-19 symptoms/a positive result/contact with a positive case) and of any difficulties caused by illness or self-isolation.

Contractors and visitors - If you have been on campus in the last seven days, and have developed symptoms of coronavirus or have tested positive, please either complete the Staff reporting form linked below (noting where appropriate your relationship to the University) or call the Safety Unit on 020 8331 9917 or email your full contact details to safetyunit@gre.ac.uk so we can call you.

Please complete the staff/PhD confirmed or suspected Covid form to submit your notification.

What happens after I notify the University?

When you submit a notification to us, there are a team of departments waiting to respond and action accordingly.  In the first instance, a member of the Health & Safety Team will contact you, to discuss your circumstances. Please see our protocols for more details about the actions that will be taken.

How will the University process the personal data collected when I notify?

Our Covid-19 privacy notice details how the University will process personal data for contact tracing (including the NHS Test and Trace scheme), and Covid-19 outbreak management.
