Information for Businesses During Coronavirus

Advice & Information

Like all universities across the sector our key priorities are the health and well-being of our learners, staff and our community; supporting our learners to continue and complete their studies and maintaining our role and impact across our region and further afield.

The University of Cumbria is still open for business to support you through these challenging times. Covid-19 has changed the business and learning environment for us all, but rest assured the University is here to continue to support our business partners and networks in Cumbria, Lancashire and throughout the country.

When we can, we are are offering a blended learning approach to university education, combining online lectures, seminars, continuing professional development (CPD) courses, workshops and public lectures with carefully monitored face to face and campus-based activity. During National and local lockdowns, we move to online learning. We are also actively demonstrating our role as an anchor institution through leading and engaging in a number of activities to support business and individual resilience, supporting North West and Cumbria business and industry with their business continuity and recovery in the current context.

We continue to monitor the evolving Covid-19 situation closely, working with official bodies and statutory agencies and responding to government advice accordingly. If you have any comments or questions regarding how we may be able to support you, or any other business-related enquiries please contact:
