# Next steps when you feel unwell

Do not come onto campus or attend face-to-face sessions if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 or are generally feeling unwell.

# Report symptoms of COVID-19

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature
  • new, continuous cough
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

If you have at least one of these symptoms, you should:

  1. Stay at home in your accomodation
  2. Let us know you are self-isolating using the University's COVID-19 Reporting Form (opens new window)
  3. Get a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus (opens new window)

One of the team from the Student Engagement Centre will be in touch to assist you should you need it whilst you self-isolate. If you need help, you can get in touch by email or give us a call.


Do not wait until your test results have been received before completing the COVID-19 Reporting Form. It will help us check if other people on campus may have been exposed and if any areas of campus need to be sterilised.
