The University has reviewed the developing public health situation and has made the decision to adjust teaching arrangements for January 2022.
As a result of this decision, the University is offering students living in University Accommodation (and associated partner accommodation) an option to pause their contract for the month of January if they do not plan to live there during this time. For further information regarding the accommodation contract pause, please click here.
If you wish to pause your contract from 1 January - 31 January 2022, please follow the guidance in the email sent to you on 22 December and submit by 31 December 2021.

Reporting absences from study
You should now follow the normal procedure for reporting sickness absences from study due to COVID-19. Regulations for Students 5.11 states that students must inform the relevant School Office of absence due to illness within three working days of returning to studies. Medical evidence will be required for absence longer than five working days. You can find information on getting an isolation note on the NHS website.
If you are absent from campus due to isolation but well enough to continue with your studies, you do not need to report sickness absence. However, you can get an isolation note using the link above and you should advise your School that you are not able to attend in person. Your School will do what they can to support you with your studies during any period of self-isolation.
As the PHA will carry out identification of close contacts, the University’s on-campus contact tracing team will be stood down and our self-reporting portal will no longer operate – except for students living in Queen’s Accommodation, who will still be required to use the portal to report if they are self-isolating due to symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.
All the important information is in the Allocation Policy, which is available in the Useful Information page on this website, below.
