Looking after students and staff

The health and wellbeing of students, staff and local communities remains the first priority for universities. They have maintained a full range of mental health and wellbeing support services by adapting provision to enable online engagement.

All students can be assured that Alliance universities are doing everything reasonably practicable, following government guidelines, to create a Covid-safe and secure environment.

Many have developed COVID-19 self-help guides for students to cover key issues that have arisen as a result of the pandemic, and are in constant communication with their university communities to keep them informed as situations develop.

UA and our members will continue working in consultation with public health experts to develop plans in line with the latest guidance, and will continue to monitor the situation closely and respond accordingly.

All Alliance universities have set up guidance and advice on their websites to look out for their students and staff. Click on the University links below to read about the safety measures they’ve put in place.
