Rising to the challenges of COVID-19
If you are a current student please see our current student FAQ page below.
We will be regularly updating this page with the most recent information about Covid-19 cases at Aston University, as well as information about additional measures in the region.
The most recently reported rolling seven-day aggregated number of reported Covid-19 cases among students and staff at Aston University are shown in the table below. We are continuing to monitor the situation closely, taking appropriate action as necessary. The staff and students affected are self-isolating in accordance with public health guidance.
As has been the case since the beginning of the pandemic, the health and wellbeing of our staff, students and the wider community are our top priority and at the heart of all our decision-making. We have a comprehensive range of measures in place on campus to control the spread of infection.
University staff have been working closely with our accommodation partner Unite Students to ensure that any students who are self-isolating do not feel that they are on their own during these very difficult times. Students living in flats on the University campus and across the city are being communicated with frequently with regular phone contact offering welfare support and advice.
We are focused on students knowing about the support are offering and how to access that support. View our current student page for more information.
The 7-day rolling average of new positive confirmed cases reported to Aston University for the seven days to Sunday 3 April 2022 is as follows:
|Total staff population||Circa 1,950||Total number of staff who have tested positive in last 7 days||29|
|Total student population||Circa 15,000||Total number of students who have tested positive in last 7 days||15|
We’re proud of our Aston University community and how we look after each other. We have never needed each other more than we do today. Help us to help each other by being considerate to others and behaving appropriately at all times. By working together we can all help to make Aston a safer place.
Together we ask that you:
Show consideration towards other students, staff and visitors. Respect those whose personal circumstances differ from yours, and who may need to adopt different safety measures.
Show empathy towards others and be supportive to those in need. Offer friendship, be inclusive, and speak out to a member of the Aston team if you think someone needs assistance.
If you show Covid-19 symptoms, follow Government guidance to self-isolate, get tested and inform us. Read our stories on supporting the national effort against COVID-19.
