Keeping our community well

We are committed to ensuring our community keep safe and well whilst enjoying a rich and engaging University life.

In order to ensure the wellness of our community we ask that you:

  • stay at home when unwell, especially with symptoms of viruses
  • follow University, UK government and NHS guidance
  • make use of sanitising resources
  • respect members of the community who choose to wear a face covering.

UAL’s approach to health and safety measures provides students and staff with a safe environment to work, study and connect.

You'll find more guidance below.

Face coverings

Face coverings will no longer be required to be worn on site. We will continue to make face coverings available for staff and students at reception desks and in libraries.

Please respect members of our community who choose to wear a face covering.

Preparing our spaces

Signage on good hygiene practice remain in place across UAL. We will maintain sanitizing stations throughout our sites. Please make use of these to keep yourself and others safe.

Cleaning remains a primary defence against the spread of COVID and other viruses. Across UAL we will clean and disinfect all touch points daily to provide 24-hour protection against the spread of viruses.

Travelling in London

Transport for London strongly encourages you to wear a face covering when using public transport.

This applies on the Tube, bus, tram, DLR, London Overground and TfL Rail networks; Dial-a-Ride services; the Emirates Air Line; and the Woolwich ferry.

Transport for London (TfL) also recommends the continued use of face covering in taxis and private hire vehicles by both drivers and passengers unless they are exempt.

Read TfL's guidance on face coverings

It’s important to plan your journey before leaving home, as some routes and lines are operating with reduced capacity.
