Arranging student accommodation for quarantine in the UK
If you're a new student coming to Bath from abroad, find out how to arrange accommodation for your quarantine period and how we'll support you during this time.
Find out whether you need to go into quarantine
If you come to the UK from another country, you might need to go into quarantine (also called 'self-isolation') for two weeks (14 days) from the day you arrive. This is a UK government regulation to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
What to do if you need to go into quarantine
To arrange University accommodation for quarantine, you must email email@example.com if you're arriving in the UK:
- between 29 August and 5 September 2020
- after 16 September 2020
How we'll support you during quarantine
We could provide you with accommodation and food for two weeks, depending on when you arrive, if you:
- are a new student
- have chosen to live in University accommodation
- need to go into quarantine when you arrive in the UK
Your accommodation will be on the University campus with up to five other quarantined students. You must follow social-distancing and hygene guidelines at all times.
Arriving between 29 August and 5 September
We'll arrange free quarantine accommodation and food for you when you email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your arrival date.
Arriving between 6 September and 16 September
You must make your own accommodation arrangements for quarantine outside of the University. You also need to arrange your own food deliveries.
Arriving after 16 September
You can request a place in quarantine accommodation on campus by emailing email@example.com. You need to pay for the accommodation, but we'll arrange free food for you for two weeks.
If we don't have any more space in our quarantine accommodation, you can:
- study from home through Bath Blend, our blended-learning experience, until there's accommodation available - watch our video about Bath Blend
- make your own accommodation arrangements for quarantine outside of the University - you would also need to arrange your own food deliveries
We'll contact you after your quarantine period to arrange for you to move into your normal University accommodation. Read more about moving into normal accommodation after quarantine.
If you arrive after 16 September you'll start paying for your normal accommodation when you move in to your quarantine room.
