COVID-19 support, advice and guidance

Latest government guidance

We believe that the educational experience is richer and deeper when you study with us and your peers on campus. The connections you build are stronger and longer-lasting. Face-to-face interaction in the classroom gives you a wider range of learning experiences and skills. And while an overwhelming majority of you have said your online learning activities are good or great (76%), the feedback from you is clear on your preferences: you want to return and study on campus. So we have chosen to make our on-campus teaching and student experience our primary focus again. Our learning design framework, RADAR, will incorporate active learning and collaboration into our classroom experience.

We expect all of our students to return to London and our beautiful campus to continue your education with us. If, due to extenuating circumstances beyond your control, you cannot return to London at the start of term, we will support your studies online for a limited period until you are able to return. You will have access to online educational content. However, the live tutor support will not be the same as that provided on campus - nor what we have offered whilst primarily online this past academic year.

This coming academic year, our emphasis will be on face-to-face teaching on campus, enriched by online content. So in September you’ll be studying in the heart of London and benefitting from our strong ties to industry and the creative sector through internships and placements, making all of London your classroom. If extenuating circumstances mean that returning to London will be difficult for you, we are here to guide and advise you. Please be sure to reach out to the Hub team if this applies to you.

Returning to campus – opening doors in September

Teaching on campus in September

We’re returning to face-to-face teaching from the start of Autumn Term in September 2021. Your core sessions where you interact with tutors and other students will be on our beautiful campus. You will also have full access to our wonderful grounds and facilities, including the Library, study spaces, and our specialist resources. 

As a student at Regent’s, you benefit from studying in the heart of London and from our strong ties to industry and the creative sector. London is our classroom, and our internships and placements give you real-world experience. Through our visiting professors and guest lecturers, you will also meet senior leaders from some of Britain’s foremost companies. 

In line with UK Government guidance, we will continue to provide a safe campus for you and the rest of our community, allowing you to focus on your studies.

Our community is centred on our campus in the heart of London. It’s the place we connect, learn, develop, and inspire each other. London is our classroom, so I’m delighted to be returning to face-to-face teaching and activities on campus from September. Professor Geoff Smith, Vice-Chancellor and CEO

We're keeping you safe

We take our responsibility to keep you safe very seriously. That's why we require that everyone accessing campus have had – and are able to show evidence of – a negative COVID-19 test within the past 72 hours.

If you are a resident in the UK, you can order rapid lateral flow tests to your home address. We accept this as proof of a negative test result, but you must be able to show your result has been uploaded to the NHS website within the last 72 hours. 

Please note: rapid tests are for people not displaying symptoms. If you are feeling unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, please book an NHS PCR test instead.


Since the start of the pandemic, we have worked hard to make our campus COVID-secure and help minimise the spread of the disease. This includes:

  • Students must supply proof of a negative COVID test result
  • Face coverings in public, indoor spaces
  • Hand sanitiser stations around campus
  • Enhanced cleaning routines in all areas
  • Safety in communal areas, teaching spaces and on-campus accommodation
  • Track and trace: book your visit and check in at Reception.

If you have symptoms, please refer to our advice on reporting and managing cases. Please also keep in mind the UK Government guidelines.
