Wellbeing - help is at hand

We all need a helping hand sometimes which is why we’re here to support you every step of the way

The New Normal

We all have an important part to play to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When you arrive at your residence you will notice that we have made some changes to our buildings to help keep you and others safe. We’ve outlined a few of these changes below and you’ll receive some more information about specific changes in your residence closer to when you arrive.


Our wonderful teams will still be available to support you throughout your stay, however you will notice we’ve made a few changes to reception areas in some of our residences. Protective screens have been installed to protect both students and staff, as well as social distancing signage and sanitising stations.

Moving around the building

To help make sure we’re adhering to social distancing in all of our residences, we will provide signage to inform you and in some residences you may be required to walk through a ‘one way system’ when moving around the building. 

Living in a new city

We know that many of you will be travelling to a different city (or perhaps a different country) when you come to live with us. There are a lot of new government guidelines in place that vary from country to country and in some places are different by city. Look for local government guidelines to find out how COVID-19 is affecting your new city. The guidelines will cover information about local grocery stores, how you can visit friends as well as travelling on public transport.

Playing your part

You can help to make sure you and your fellow students stay safe by following these guidelines.
