Information for visitors and the local community

For Oxford Brookes, the top priority throughout the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our whole community. The University has put a range of measures in place measures, in line with government and public health advice, to provide a safe and secure environment.

Until further notice, our sites will be open for essential visitors and by invitation only. In order to support the NHS ‘test and trace’ service and help ensure the safety of our staff, students and visitors, we have implemented a simple system to track attendance in a number of areas such as teaching rooms, catering outlets, social study areas and libraries. This involves scanning a QR code on your mobile phone (or alternatively typing a URL into your browser).

Unfortunately it will not be possible for members of the local community to access our library or catering facilities as part of the current measures. Most of our events and public lectures will, however, be going online to ensure they are accessible to all.

Members of the general public will be able to continue to access the following services, in accordance with social distancing measures:

The University will continue to update these webpages with the latest information for visitors and the local community.
