If you are travelling to campus from outside of the UK, you can arrive at your accommodation two weeks early for no additional cost in order to quarantine (either because you are arriving from a country where quarantine on arrival in the UK is required, or because you either wish to self-isolate on arrival as an extra precaution or have concerns your country may be placed on the UK quarantine list between now and the beginning of the academic term).
For a full list of countries which currently require quarantine on arrival please visit: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors
The countries on this list are subject to change.
Your self-isolating accommodation will consist of a single bedroom within a cluster flat, where some facilities will be shared with other students in your household.
In order for you to complete your self-isolation period in time for welcome week, your accommodation booking will start on either the 17th, 18th 19th or 20th September. To make a booking please complete the booking form. The accommodation team will then be in touch with your allocation and key collection information.
You must submit your booking request before Tuesday 15th September in order for us to accept your booking.
If your circumstances change and you have to cancel your quarantine booking, please notify us by emailing email@example.com as soon as possible.
Please note, this only applies to our Colchester and Southend Campuses.
