We’d like to say welcome back to all our students following the Easter break and also a welcome to campus to those students who have joined us in Swansea.
We are really pleased to be able to open some more facilities such as outdoor social spaces, our gym facilities (4th May) and extended study space to welcome you back.
Keeping our facilities open and allowing a return to campus is based on certain criteria and guidelines from the Government, so we would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some very important safety measures.
- All students must follow Welsh Government guidelines and University regulations, as every student agreed to do when signing the Student Charter at enrolment. As a result of gatherings and non-compliant activity in a halls of residence over the weekend where there is a known case, the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) have instructed a full scale self-isolation of the whole hall which we must comply with. We want to avoid this action being repeated so we need your full cooperation to ensure this does not happen again.
- All students are asked to take part in asymptomatic Covid-19 tests when they return to University. This will help those who are asymptomatic but could spread the virus know that they have to self-isolate. To book a test please go to our web pages.
- If you are currently in term time accommodation and have tested positive for Covid-19, or have been told to self-isolate by the University or NHS Wales (TTP) service you must not return to your home address until you have finished your isolation. You are breaking the law and could be fined if you do not stay at your term time accommodation and self-isolate. Our dedicated MyUniSupport service will be able to help students self-isolating.
- If you test positive at any time for Covid-19 please remember to let us know so we can support you.
We are very grateful to vast majority of students who have continued to follow guidelines, we know the past few months have not been easy. Restrictions are easing, however please do not get complacent. If we do see breaches, we will sadly have no choice but to take disciplinary action which can result in removal from University. Please do not put yourself in that position as we want every student to have a safe and positive end to the term.
If you have any questions or require additional support, please email MyUniSupport
