Our plans for September


We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to our campuses next term

In line with Government guidance, we will be delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity on campus as possible and it will be great to have our students back.

The latest government advice is that Step 4 of the roadmap out of lockdown will be implemented from 19 July 2021. We'll no longer need to socially distance but we'll continue to take steps to keep our university community safe - enabling regular testing for all students and staff and supporting everyone to get vaccinated.

We know some of our students may not be able to join us immediately and that others may continue to need to isolate, quarantine or care for others. Where students are unable to join us in person, we’ll ensure we provide the best quality, digitally-enabled mix of teaching.

We've been working hard to prepare for this wider re-opening. Full details for individual programmes will be shared by Programme Leaders with students before the start of term. We’ve also learnt a lot over the last sixteen months, and we plan to keep some of the new ways of working that students and staff have told us have worked well.

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

Depending on the national situation, and Government advice, our plans for Term 1 may need to change and we may need to move activity online at short notice. We have plans in place to manage this and we’re confident that we can make any transition quick and easy for our students and our staff.

The health and safety of our university community remains our top priority and if you have any concerns or questions, support is available.

We’re really looking forward to the next academic year.

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

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