No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

England is currently in a new national lockdown, if you are currently in England you should only leave home for one of a few reasons and this guidance is law, you can be fined for breaching it. 

We know this is going to be a difficult period for a lot of our members, socially and academically, and no doubt you’ll have questions about what to do and how things will work. 

We’ve rounded up the key things you need to know as well as support and tips to help you through it. 

Teaching 

Teaching for almost all courses will be entirely online until at least mid-February.

This lockdown is more like the one in March of last year, campuses will not be open for teaching except for a few courses and you will most likely not receive face-to-face teaching. 

If your course will continue to receive face-to-face teaching the University will notify you but otherwise you should not come to campus. 

Library 

Closed until further notice in line with the new lockdown restrictions. Find out more

Need help? Please use the Virtual library service which is available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday

Travel And Accommodation 

You should remain where you are, do not travel between your term-time and permanent addresses. 

If you are currently in your halls or student house you should remain there, if you are at home you should not travel back to your halls or student house. 

What About My Visa? 

If you are an international student worried about how the travel restrictions affect your visa, and whether you can travel home or should return to the UK please contact the International Office

What About My Accommodation? 

If you are in your student accommodation you should remain there and follow the guidance your accommodation provider gives. If you have any issues with your accommodation you can contact the Students Union Advice Centre.

For students unable to return to their accommodation we're in talks with the University and hope to have an update soon.

Some volunteering will still go ahead, you should contact your placement provider to check.

Support In Lockdown 

Connections Matter has articles, resources, virtual events and support to ensure students and staff can stay connected and healthy. 

We published a pair of articles with support for getting through the Winter break at home and coping with the Winter Holiday as an LGBTQ+ student, while the Winter break is coming to an end, a lot of the advice and links still apply. 

University Welfare Support Services covers all student issues including: care leavers, maternity, accommodation disputes, domestic and relationship issues, academic issues, academic appeals and temporary/permanent withdrawals. 

Importantly, we’re here to listen to your feedback and do our best to make improvements, you can contact London.su@coventry.ac.uk with any worries or concerns you have, if you need help with money, accommodation, or academic representation you can contact suadvice@coventry.ac.uk.
