Keeping King’s safe together

Updated: 4 November 2020

A national lockdown will be in place across England from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December. Under these new restrictions:

    • The university will remain open and we will continue to provide in-person teaching where it is most appropriate
    • Students and staff can continue to travel to and from our campuses
    • Students should not travel home during lockdown and should remain at their usual term-time address to prevent any further spread of the virus
    • Read the full outline of our plans

Protecting the health and wellbeing of our community of students and staff is our priority. We ask that everyone in our community familiarise themselves with the current restrictions and what they might mean for you, along with following the health and safety measures we have put in place on our campuses and in our residences. Protecting our own health and that of others is a responsibility we each have, so please do read this guidance before visiting our campuses. 

We are prepared to respond quickly to implement additional and appropriate measures where necessary and in the instance of suspected or confirmed cases.

The latest Government guidance is available on the gov.uk website.
