University Centre Leeds is open and we’re following government COVID-19 advice

Our campus remains open from Thursday 5 November following government COVID-19 advice and restrictions. This means our students can continue their education as they build their knowledge and skills for the future.

We’ve fitted additional hand sanitiser stations throughout our campuses, so you can keep your hands clean. In every classroom, there are also cleaning packs to wipe down shared equipment before and after use. 

We’re asking everyone to wear a face covering at all times (unless they’re unable to) and to keep 2 metres apart. We’re encouraging everyone to be kind and supportive to each other too. 

To keep us all safe, we have a successful ‘bubble’ system in place. When positive COVID-19 cases have been identified, these ‘bubbles’ are closed for up to 14 days and the members stay at home. Thanks to everyone’s support, this has been a real success and it’s allowed us to remain open continuously since September.

We can all help to reduce the COVID-19 infection rate by:

  • Limiting the number of people from outside our households we come into contact with
  • Making space and staying 2m from people outside our households or support bubble
  • Washing hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • Covering faces while on campus
  • Isolating when advised to

Our NHS services are extremely busy at this time and it’s important that anyone who experiences any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 stays at home. These symptoms include a new, continuous cough, high temperature, loss or change to your sense of taste or smell.
