COVID-19 Guidelines for the Homerton College Community

As a College, we are committed to providing the best possible care for our students and Fellows, as well as a safe working environment for staff.

Following the outbreak of Covid-19 in one of our student accommodation blocks, the senior management team have been working closely with Public Health England, local public health authorities and the Collegiate University’s Incident Management team. We are making sure that all students, including those in self-isolation, are given the highest level of support and provided with clear and consistent information.

We ask that all members of the Homerton community continue to adhere to the Covid-19 safety guidelines in place, both in College and the wider University. They are there to protect you and your fellow Homertonians.

Over the next few weeks, our Principal Geoff Ward will be providing a daily video update, to ensure our members and the wider community are kept up to date with the situation at Homerton.
