FAQs and links to relevant bodies

​These FAQs cover questions relating to the Covid-19 outbreak, including how universities are supporting students remaining in halls of residence, and what will happen to exams and assessments. 

Universities are working hard to support all staff and students who will have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. No university is completely closed, and universities are committed to supporting those students still living on campus, and maintaining infrastructure, ongoing research, and other systems that cannot be switched off. 

We have answered some common questions and pointed to information including regulatory resources, where guidelines have been developed for the benefit of universities and students. 

The situation is rapidly evolving and it is important to always stay up to date with the very latest UK government advice on gov.uk/coronavirus, and advice from the devolved nations.

If you have a question not covered here, please email covid19@universitiesuk.ac.uk
