COVID Guidance for Halls

By sophiebk 10 Jun 2021

While restrictions around Covid 19 have eased, residents are still expected to practise social distancing, wear face coverings when moving around the halls and be mindful of the guidance in place.

The current guidance is:

  • 6 people can mix indoors including overnight stays (or people from two households if this number is greater than 6)
  • Up to 30 people can meet outdoors
  • Indoor hospitality venues such as restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes can reopen.
  • Organised indoor sport will be able to take place for all (this includes gym classes)

 You can read more about the full list of restrictions here.  

How does this affect life in Halls

If you are in a flat of 6 or more students, only one flatmate can have a visitor or overnight guest. To make sure that you stick to this, it is important to first talk with your flatmates to agree plans for having visitors so that you avoid having too many people in your flat at one time.

Government guidance advises, you must not interact with anyone outside of your own group (of 30 people outdoors or six people indoors).

If you are meeting people indoors, you can make a personal choice on whether to keep your distance from them, but you should still be cautious to help keep you, your family, friends and those who work around you, safe.

What to do if you have a concern 

If someone in your household is not following the rules, in the first instance please try and raise this with them directly. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact your Residential Adviser for support. If a problem persists, your RA will be able to escalate this to your Hall Warden for disciplinary action. It is important to be aware that the University may take disciplinary action or the police and other enforcement officers may issue penalty notices if this is not followed. Any noise concerns in the evening/overnight should be reported to the duty RA, and any concerns in the day to your Hall Reception Team.  

Getting a test

Tests, whether you have symptoms or not, are available for all University of Liverpool students through the University. The test centres are at the Campus Sports Centre and Greenbank Student Village. Click here for more information and to book a test.
