Information for Staff: Returning to Campus

Regent's is currently implementing plans for a measured and phased return to campus. This page has information and advice about how and when to return, and what to expect when you arrive.

So we can return to a safe working environment, everyone on campus must follow all health and safety requirements.

Please read and familiarise yourself with the University's Guide to minimising the spread of COVID-19 and the Safety on Campus Guide.

If you are a line manager, and would like to request a copy of the Manager's Guide, please email [email protected].
