COVID-19 support, advice and guidance

Latest government guidance

The UK Government reopened universities in England on 17 May. We continue to teach our courses online in Summer Term to ensure you don’t experience any disruption during the exam period. During Spring Term, we supported our creative students with their practical work on campus. And from 24 May, we’ll be offering 1:1 and group tutorials on campus for students who have taught modules or are completing their dissertations and major projects in the Summer Term. If you’re not currently in London, you can access support online.

Returning to campus – opening doors in September

Teaching on campus in September

We’re actively planning and working towards a full return 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 planning 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. In line with UK Government guidance, we require that everyone accessing campus have had – and are able to show evidence of – a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours.

We've partnered with the University of London to make rapid COVID-19 tests free for all Regent's staff and students. Book online now, using your Regent's email address. You can book for up to five days ahead of time.

If you are a resident in the UK, you can also 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
  • Temperature checks on arrival
  • Face coverings in public, indoor spaces
  • Hand sanitiser stations around campus
  • One-way arrows and distance markers
  • 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.
