Life In London

Returning to campus

By Adrian 08 Mar 2021

Some practical-based university courses have resumed in-person teaching and students on those courses have been invited by their universities to return to campus. You should follow any instructions given to you by the university where you study. Your university will also tell you how to access asymptomatic testing before you return to the classroom.

As an intercollegiate halls resident, you are also eligible to use the University of London test site at Student Central, Malet Street WC1E 7HY: https://london.ac.uk/test-and-trace.

If you are returning to London from outside the Common Travel Area (UK, Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands), you must - by law - quarantine for 10 days. You will also need to show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival at the UK border and book two further tests to be taken on days 2 and 8 after arrival. Stricter requirements apply to arrivals from a list of countries from which direct travel to the UK is banned.
