We fully understand that local residents and our students will have a lot of questions about how we plan to return students to Bath this year within Covid-19 guidelines.
We have all had to adapt to a new reality – COVID-19 has meant we’ve had to make changes to the way we live. By working together as a community, we can take steps individually and together, to minimise risk.
At the University of Bath we are guiding our students through our 'Be Safe' campaign, with the aim of supporting them in complying with government guidelines and in being good citizens as they live and work in the city of Bath. We are working with colleagues through the SCP to ensure messaging reaches all students in Bath, regardless of which institution they are registered at.
We are also putting in place a number of new measures to ensure the safety of students and members of the public at this time, from creating study and socialisation spaces in town to reduce pressure on transport services, through to the introduction of Shared Living Agreements for students in shared houses.
