The health and welfare of our students, staff and visitors is our key priority. Learn more about our safety measures and how you can help keep our community safe.

Working together to keep our community safe

Working together, we can continue to help minimise the spread and impact of Covid-19 by following the Government guidelines and NHS Covid-19 health advice, in particular.

Wear face coverings in teaching spaces and communal areas

Wearing a face covering helps to keep others safe.

Unless medically exempt, we recommend you wear face coverings in teaching spaces, communal areas of our buildings and other areas where there are lots of people around.

Face coverings are available free-of-charge at all student receptions.  

Any sign of symptoms - do the right thing!

Get fully vaccinated

  • You can help keep yourself, your friends and family safe by making sure you’re vaccinated against Covid-19.
  • You can book vaccinations at local centres across the UK using the NHS vaccination booking site or by looking out for their ‘Grab a Jab’ campaign.
  • There are walk-in vaccine centres across Kent and Medway
  • Remember you’re not fully vaccinated until two weeks after your second dose of the vaccine.

Keep it clean

  • ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it’ - please use tissues to catch coughs and sneezes, avoiding touching the face
  • Please keep your hands clean using proper hand washing techniques. Use soap and water where you can or use one of the many sanitiser stations provided around both our campuses.
  • We have maintained additional levels of cleaning across all our buildings and facilities including teaching, study, accommodation and shared recreational areas.


Enjoy the fresh air

  • Being outdoors or in well ventilated indoor spaces helps reduce transmission. All our teaching, study and shared recreational spaces have been assessed and, where necessary, adapted to meet Government ventilation requirements.
  • Where you can, meet people outside or, when in accommodation, keep some windows open and let the fresh air in.
