The government has announced that the COVID-19 risk level in London has escalated from ‘medium’ to ‘high’ risk. London is now part of a Tier 2 local lockdown, meaning that different households can no longer socialise indoors. The lockdown has been in effect since Saturday 17 October 2020.
Please note that we will continue with our hybrid learning model, conducting lessons with strict social distancing, masks and sanitation. Our university is currently open to students, however we will notify you if this changes.
You can monitor local lockdown alerts on the gov.uk website here.You can access general coronavirus updates and news on the gov.uk COVID-19 section.
The Ravensbourne building
Following government advice, we introduced extensive safety measures to the Ravensbourne building. We have successfully adapted our learning environment so that students can make the most of our facilities while maintaining social distancing.
Public Health England has declared our university building covid-secure, meaning we have all the necessary safety measures in place to keep our community safe.
It is mandatory for all our staff and students to have their temperature checked before entering our building. If you are displaying any of the symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attempt to travel to or enter our building. Please contact NHS 111 and follow their guidance.
What to do if you are displaying COVID-19 symptoms
Face masks and protective shields
It is mandatory for all our staff and students to wear a face mask or shield (for those who are face mask exempt) whilst moving around the general circulation areas. Face masks and shields (for those who are face mask exempt) can be obtained free of charge at the front of house.
We have introduced a number of key safety measures whilst you are in the building. These include: one-way system for moving around the building, sanitisation stations and 2m social distancing markers.
The video below details all of our new safety measures, showing how we've adapted the building so students can safely enjoy our facilities.
We've ensured that everyone will have the space needed to learn, create and thrive.
From this autumn, our teaching will move to a hybrid approach. Some of our classroom sessions will move online to allow the more practical elements that require access to our specialist spaces or equipment to continue to be available on site.
We have also expanded our library space, prototyping, making areas and individual study spaces for students to work in the building.
Student wellbeing support We understand that 2020 has been an especially tough year. If students need someone to talk to, they are reminded to contact our dedicated student services team. Student services are currently hosting daily drop in sessions from 1.00pm - 2.00pm to offer any assistance students may need. All of our existing services have moved online, so students can access the same support that was available in the building.
