COVID -19 safety measures 

Your safety as a guest staying with us over the summer is of paramount importance, and we are dedicated to keeping a safe environment for all our guests. We will always adhere to government guidance, as well as the University’s pledge to look after our community.

Current measures in place include:

  • Hand hygiene facilities throughout the buildings, in communal areas such as reception, communal lobbies and lift lobbies
  • Protective screens at all reception areas
  • Wearing a face covering if able to do so
  • Regular cleaning of communal areas and touch-points such as door handles and lift buttons
  • Regular testing for staff.

In addition to the above, we ask that all our guests take personal responsibility for their own actions and behaviours and follow these basic rules. This will reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The UAL position is to strongly encourage the following:

  • Follow self-isolation rules if you have possible symptoms of COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19
  • Follow UK Governments guidelines on COVID-19 safety including any measures put in place when traveling from abroad
  • Frequent hand-washing and use of sanitiser stations
  • Maintain social distancing where it makes sense to do so (e.g. in crowded or less well-ventilated spaces)
  • Regular testing
  • Continuing to observe the UAL Community Pledge
  • Taking personal responsibility to act sensibly.
