Covid-19 Updates & Information

Here we will provide you with the latest guidance, information and updates on how Covid-19 effects Students’ Union services and activities.

University Guidance - On Campus

To keep everyone safe, we’re asking all students to take a Covid-19 test before you arrive on campus. You’ll then need to do two lateral flow tests each week. Either go to a test centre or use a home testing kit. You can order free home testing kits from the gov.uk website or collect them from Harrington Building when you are on campus.

A vaccination bus will be on Preston Campus on Greenbank car park 9am - 4pm on Thursdays 30 September and 7 October and at Burnley College on Tuesday 5 October. Students can get their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccination. Second doses are only available 8 weeks after the first dose.

We are advising that students and colleagues wear face coverings in crowded indoor spaces, keep a distance as far as possible and continue to wash hands and sanitise. 

 

The Students' Union Building

Our building is open and you can visit our Welcome Point with any questions whilst you are on campus, weekdays 9am - 5pm.

Both the Union Shop and the Union Cafe are open.

Follow us on social media @uclansu to keep up to date with all the latest student news, and drop us a DM if you have a question or concern. We'll be in touch as soon as possible.

Your Concerns
If you have any concerns about your University experience through Covid-19, the Elected Officer team and our other Elected Reps are listening to your feedback and championing your concerns directly to the University and the Vice Chancellor's Group. 

Last year, it was announced that the University has reviewed and agreed to reinstate a No Detriment Policy. This was down to students sharing their worries and concerns with us and together, acting on this to secure the policy change to support your academic experience. You can read more about it here.

To raise your concerns, you can message us on social media @uclansu or email yourunion@uclan.ac.uk.


Sports Clubs, Societies and Events
Our Sports Clubs and Societies are now able to meet in-person, alongside many of our Societies and other student-led groups running great online events and activities for you to get involved with.


What’s next?
Freshers will have both in-person and online events. Check out our Freshers website to keep up to date with everything you can get involved in!
