Information for students during COVID-19

Getting out and about

Face coverings

You’ll need to wear these in shops or using public transport for essential travel. Make sure you’ve always got one handy. Always make sure you're following latest guidance on physical distancing and general COVID-19 guidance.


We have many beautiful parks and open spaces for you to enjoy but please stay safe and help us look after them by following our parks, green spaces and allotments guidance.

Public transport

Keep up to date with bus and tram services for safety advice and service updates.

Cycling and walking

A great way to get around the city.

Please always follow our Paths for Everyone code – stay safe and be considerate of others.

We’re creating more Spaces for People with car-free streets, wider pavements and cycle lanes to make it easier for us to enjoy our outdoor spaces and safer for us to travel during COVID-19.
