COVID Safety at Herts

Following latest Government updates, we have updated our guidance. Read below to see what the University is doing and what you can do to help.

Face coverings

Face coverings are no longer mandatory in University buildings, but please wear one if you wish to. You can pick up a face covering from either main reception on campus while stocks last.


You no longer need to test regularly, but if you feel unwell or have any COVID-19 symptoms such as a high temperature or a new cough, you may still wish to test. Rapid lateral flow test kits are no longer free, it is your personal choice whether you test or not.

Self-isolation guidelines

You don’t legally need to self-isolate if you have COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19. However, the University asks that if you feel unwell or test positive to stay at home and avoid contact with others where possible. If you choose to test and receive a positive result, please inform the Dean of Students team by completing this form as soon as you can.

Safety measures on campus

The University continues to maintain safety measures on campus including an enhanced cleaning regime, ventilation, and Co2 monitoring across our campuses. Please continue to wash or sanitise your hands regularly.
