New measures to make WBS campus 'Covid-secure'

02 September 2020

Warwick Business School has been working hard to make its campus as ‘Covid-secure’ as possible for the return of students.

The school and the University of Warwick alongside the Students’ Union have been in constant dialogue with public health officials and the local authorities to make sure the approproiate measures are in place.

It means there will be some changes for students and staff when they return to campus to ensure a Covid-secure environment.

Teaching will be a mix of face-to-face, with reduced class sizes, and online, with one-way systems around the buildings to help with social distancing.

Sanitizers will be placed at the entrance, exits and around the school, while face masks will need to be worn and there will be limits on the number allowed into student lounges with additional areas made available for study.

The WBS café will be open for takeaway food and drink only with details on students meeting their personal tutor, programme team and course directors be sent to them shortly.

Find out more about the new measures in place at WBS in the video below.

As well as putting in safety measures to create Covid-secure campuses the University of Warwick has brought in additional measures to  safely manage the return of students:  

  • Quarantine – students in university-owned accommodation who have travelled from a country where quarantine is required, will be fully supported to observe isolation.  
  • Test and trace – both universities are working closely with the NHS to help identify those who may have been in ‘close contact’ with a positive case in our communities and react as quickly as possible. Rapid testing will be available on both campuses.
