New Code of Conduct to ensure a safe return to campus

Kent logo

To help keep our community safe as we start returning to campus, a new Covid-19 Code of Conduct for Staff and Students has been agreed.

The Code of Conduct, which is aligned to government guidelines so subject to change, highlights the need to adapt to new ways of studying and working as the lockdown eases and we return to campus.

The Code outlines changes to our environment, adaptations to ensure our sites are Covid-secure, and what we all need to do to make sure we keep each other safe. There are detailed sections on:

  • How Covid-19 is transmitted and what to do if you have symptoms on campus
  • A duty of care to protect all members of community
  • Travelling to and from campus
  • Hygiene and cleanliness
  • Social distancing measures
  • Face coverings
  • Vulnerable groups
  • Mental ill health

All staff and students are expected to follow the Covid-19 Code of Conduct guidelines while on campus, as well as standards within our existing Charter/Code of Conduct.

We will shortly be launching a campaign to support our staff, students and visitors with the new behaviours expected on campus. This will help us all to understand how we can keep our University community safe and support each other as we return to work.

For latest University updates and FAQs on Covid-19, see our staff webpages.
