Returning to campus following government announcement

TLDRoffon

All students were able to return to campus from 17 May

The Government confirmed that all students were able to return to on-campus teaching from Monday 17 May, which is positive news.

Our priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of our whole university community.

The Government has been clear that regular testing for students and staff continues to be a key part of the roadmap and wider return and we are proud to have both local authority and our own testing facilities on all three of our campuses. Tests can be booked via Greenwich council and Medway council (you can book a test at any council test site).

We will maintain our existing Covid-Safe measures, including observing social distancing, to continue to support the safe operation of our campuses.

Our libraries are still open, with covid-safe measures in place, and our Student Centres are still here to help.

Covid Safe Teaching and Learning 2021/22

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2021/22 and we are committed to delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity as possible face-to-face and on campus for the 2021/22 academic year.

Please note that UK Coronavirus policy continues to adapt to ongoing changes.

Our plans may need to change and we may need to move activity online at short notice in response to any changes in Government guidance and Covid safety requirements.

Continuing to respond to the Covid-challenge

The university has been working closely with public health partners to monitor and respond to the number of Covid cases within our community.

While we haven’t seen a large number of university cases, we remain vigilant, with regular monitoring and reporting of all cases.

We are still working hard to keep our campuses safe. Our Covid-Safe Charter sets out our expectations for our whole university community, including that we all continue to observe social distancing, wear face coverings (unless exempt) and follow the Government guidance on who we can mix with.

We’re still here to help

Regular activities continue to be run by Greenwich Students’ Union and Greenwich and Kent Students’ Unions and for those who need it, financial support is also available via the Greenwich Hardship Fund. We have also opened a dedicated hardship fund for continuing international and EU students. For more information, contact our finance advisors on studentfinance@gre.ac.uk.

The university's support services continue to be available through our Student Wellbeing Service and the Students' Union Advice Service.

Take care, stay safe and follow us (@UniofGreenwich) to keep updated on all our university news.
