Bishop Grosseteste University is aware of the ongoing press coverage regarding university students within the UK and is constantly monitoring the situation for our students. To ensure transparency, we will publish the live number of cases on a weekly basis. We will not provide any further information on individual cases.

Staff / students currently self-isolating due to a positive test result
Staff / students currently self-isolating as a precautionary measure because a close contact / member of their household has suspected symptoms or tested positive.
The University has put in place extensive measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, including enhanced cleaning regimes, increased handwashing and sanitising facilities, the wearing of face coverings and extensive signage to promote safe space and social distancing. We have provided clear guidance on how we can all help each other to stay safe, socialising in groups of up to six (subject to Tier or Lockdown restrictions) and how to tell us if you need to self-isolate and / or get a test. Once you tell us then we will provide advice and support on learning and teaching, living in accommodation and well-being whilst you are self-isolating. We provide 24/7 mental health support to all students, and we encourage everyone who needs to, to use that facility and seek the support of staff including- Student Advice, Chaplaincy, the Students’ Union and tutors.
