We're looking forward to welcoming new and returning students to Kent for the Autumn term.
Information is available for students on the current arrangements as well as the test to travel guidelines provided by the UK Government. Please make sure you have read those before travelling.
Despite the relaxation of many restrictions, Covid-19 is still with us and we are continuing to prioritise the health of our students, staff, visitors and neighbours to keep our community safe.
As long as you are symptom-free, please get tested regularly. Test sites are available on campus, and you can also collect home testing kits from our online test centres, local pharmacies or order them online.
You should be tested twice a week if you are living or working on campus or just visiting for essential use of the Library or other facilities.
We have continued to publish regular updates on the number of our active cases. We have both asymptomatic testing sites and NHS Local Testing Sites at both Canterbury and Medway. We continue to work closely with our local public health officials and a huge amount of effort have been put in to ensure that our campuses are Covid-safe. The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff remain our key priority.
