Information for Staff: Returning to Campus

Regent's is currently implementing plans for a measured and phased return to campus, when it is safe to do so. 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].
