Safety On Campus

Since the start of the pandemic, we have been supporting our students to access as many of our facilities and services as possible when they are at our campuses.

We have ensured that risk assessments are completed and appropriate health and safety measures have been put in place.

Even more of our facilities will be available on campus from September 2021, in line with Welsh Government regulations. 

Below, you’ll find information on the steps we’ve taken to ensure that the health, safety and wellbeing of those using our campuses continues to be prioritised. 



Face coverings need to be worn indoors in public areas at all of our sites (Cardiff, Glyntaff, Newport, Treforest and the Sport Park).

They can be removed in teaching spaces if desired, if social distancing can be maintained, and where PPE hasn't been deemed mandatory for a specific task. If social distancing cannot be maintained, students and colleagues are asked to keep their face coverings on.

Blended Learning - Social Dinstancing Signs

One-way systems are in place in some areas of our buildings, helping to direct the flow of traffic.

Blended Learning - Cleaning High Volume Areas

There is regular cleaning of high-use areas, such as door handles.

Blended Learning - Hand Sanister Stations

Don't forget to use the hand sanitising stations at the entrance and exit points of each building.

Blended Learning - Protective Barriers

Protective screens are in place in some areas, such as receptions and helpdesks.

Blended Learning - Safety Bins

Appropriate bins are located around campus, so waste can be correctly and safely disposed of.
