Student Halls and Community Bubbles

As an Officer Team, we’ve been asking your thoughts around community bubbles and the University communications - and we look forward to sharing these with the University. Whilst that these bubbles are looking to apply to those in ‘halls’ to provide the best possible experiences, your views and opinions of students who have lived in halls and interact with students will be taken forward.

The below information is from the University, with more information on the below link and MyStaffsUni app

“With our commitment to open our Campuses in September, but with the necessity to ensure that our students living within our residences can live as close to a normal ‘Halls’ experience as is possible, our accommodation experience has never been more important. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our new student intake, we’re making a number of changes to make our Halls feel like a safe home environment and create a sense of belonging for those commencing study with us.

Fundamentally this will mean reducing the occupancy levels in existing student flats and houses – so students have plenty of room and we reduce potential risk of infection - and allocating accommodation to students undertaking similar courses to create protected ‘bubbles’ or households and foster a supportive living, learning community.

While the new controls will restrict movement in and out of student households, they do not limit interactions with other students elsewhere on campus or outside, although we expect all students to observe social distancing guidance.“
