Latest student covid updates
National lockdown - Jan 2021
Following the government announcement that we are in a third national lockdown, universities have been asked to pause face-to-face teaching during this time apart from to those on medicine, pharmacy or social work courses.
As a result, all our teaching will be delivered online until the end of February unless you are studying on one of the above courses. The start of term remains 18 January 2021.
You should follow Government guidance and not move between your home and term-time addresses. Unless you are already living on campus, please do not come onto campus until you hear from the University that it is possible to do so. We will continue to support you and your studies no matter where you are.
Rent reduction scheme
In light of the new restrictions, we are also introducing a rent reduction scheme for all students with contracts for accommodation on the Canterbury campus who are unable to return due to the current Government lockdown restrictions.
As part of the Government’s testing programme, we are offering asymptomatic Covid-19 testing for University of Kent students and staff at both Canterbury and Medway.
