Facilities and services available on-campus next term |
Professor Martin Steggall, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Student
are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back to campus this term and
to seeing many more of you accessing learning and teaching on our sites. Our
various facilities and services will also be available to support you during
your time on our campuses. Below you will find details of some of the key
services that are available for you.
We are also asking everyone to have their Covid-19
vaccination before they come to campus. If you have not yet received
your vaccine, you can find the contact details for Welsh local health boards on
the Welsh Government website, as well as more
information on the NHS website.
For UK students, if you are moving to term-time
accommodation, then you also are encouraged to have a Covid-19 test shortly
before you move. You can do this via the NHS Covid-19 test booking system - please
answer the questions normally, and select ‘no’ when asked if you have symptoms,
select ‘no’ when asked if you are an essential worker (unless this is true for
you) and select ‘I’ve been told to get a test by my nursery, work or place of
education’ and then ‘I’m a student returning to university in Wales’ when asked
‘why are you asking for a test?’.
For international students, information on
arrivals, testing and quarantine support can be found here.
WelcomeFest | Booking now open
USW and the Students’ Union have partnered to create a
new event for 2021 to welcome new and existing students to our campuses! The
WelcomeFest will be held at each campus - there will be a main stage, live
music and entertainment, free food tasters and drinks, as well as a local
traders’ market and information stalls for all of the things you need to know
about USW. It will also incorporate elements of freshers’ fairs, which are
traditionally held at the start of term, with the SU hosting stalls and
It’s a mainly outdoors event, with covered areas, so
check the weather before you arrive and either wrap up warm or bring your sunscreen
(you never can quite tell which way it will go here in Wales!).
Booking is now open, so to secure your free tickets,
please visit the relevant campus booking page below:
off-campus students who are studying with a partner college should
check guidance and communication from their college, about local attendance,
assessment and teaching arrangements.
