How we are keeping our community safe

Harper Adams University is operating in accordance with current Department for Education guidance for Universities.

Please see the Information for Students page for details of teaching arrangements. In all instances, the University is following government guidance and public health guidance.  Students and staff will continue to be updated via email and via the learning hub and staff portal as and when arrangements change. 

Face coverings must be worn inside all non-residential university buildings unless you are either exempt or seated to eat or drink.  As we need to ventilate our buildings all year round in accordance with government guidance please ensure you dress accordingly. 

Other measures to protect our community include:

  • A dedicated Covid-19 hotline through which individuals can access advice, report symptoms and report test results.

  • Availability of Lateral flow tests for all staff and students to carry out home testing; and a mobile PCR testing centre on campus.

  • For students completing a major project as part of their programme, our extensive practical facilities will be available.

  • Details of our COVID Academic Assistance Package have been provided to our students. This summarises the changes to policies and regulations and support services during the pandemic.

  • Our updated Community Charter remains in place to ensure all staff and students are aware of their responsibilities.

  • Support arrangements are in place in the event of students requiring to self-isolate, including catering, isolation accommodation and mental health provision.


The University operates a Covid-19 management group to oversee University Covid related measures and response plans. This group is made up of members of the Senior Management Team and leaders of professional and student services. It is chaired by the Vice-Chancellor. This group meets regularly and will continue to be the responsible group for mobilising emergency responses in the event of an outbreak on campus or in the local or wider community.
