An international student in the classroom


Our HECollect testing programme has now launched and from Monday 24 May, students and staff can collect home testing kits from any of our campus receptions. You can find out more about our testing programme here.   

Regular testing is an important element of our covid safety measures and helps to keep our campuses and communities safe. We therefore expect all students and staff who are accessing our campuses to take a test twice a week until further notice. 

Coronavirus restrictions remain in place across the country, including for people who have been vaccinated. Restrictions have been eased following the move to step 3 of the Goverment roadmap on 17 May. However, we must continue to exercise caution.

All students and staff should continue to check their university email accounts, relevant Blackboard pages, these pages and our social media channels for the latest information.

Support for current students

The Student Hub includes guidance for a range of issues and situations, including support during self-isolation. Should you fall ill, please use the links there to notify the university of your covid status and to access additional support. If you need information about any aspect of your course, placement, support services or accommodation, please log in to your student account for full access to My.Cumbria and the Student Hub. If you are unable to access those resources, please email for further guidance.
