At UAL we’ve been working hard to make sure your learning environment is as safe and welcoming as possible.
Here’s a breakdown of what we’ve been doing to get our sites ready and what you can expect when you arrive.
All of our sites have undergone a deep clean in preparation for your arrival. This includes
- all classrooms
- learning environments
- canteens and shops.
Preparing our spaces
All across the university you’ll find signage, reminding you:
- to keep your distance
- to wear a face covering
- where you’ll need to wait for others to finish before you can proceed. For example, in a queue or some smaller spaces.
We’ve installed hand sanitising stations across the university to help you keep your hands clean and to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Travelling in London
You must wear a face covering when using public transport or taking a taxi.
Visit the TfL website for an overview of measures they have introduced to help keep you safe. These include:
- Enhanced cleaning
- Social distancing
- Increased hand sanitising stations
It’s important to plan your journey before leaving as some routes and lines may be operating with reduced capacity.
Keeping each other safe
It’s important that we all play our part to stop the spread of coronavirus and to keep each other safe. You can do this by sticking to a few simple rules when travelling around the university.
- If you feel sick at any point with the symptoms of coronavirus, you must stay at home. If you’re in one of our buildings, you should leave immediately and contact the National Health Service (NHS) on 111.
- When on site use the hand sanitising gel provided.
- You should wash your hands frequently with soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds each time.
- We’ve worked out just how many students can be on site at one time, so you must only attend your college when you have a class or a pre-arranged a visit.
- Following Government guidance, the wearing of face coverings is mandatory at UAL, unless you have a valid reason not to.
This includes, but isn’t limited to:
- anyone who cannot put on, wear or remove a mask because of a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability
- where wearing a mask will cause severe distress
- if you’re required to lip-read.
