Support bubbles in University residences

Government guidance allows students to make a support bubble with another household if:

  • you are living alone, or
  • you have no other students in your living circle.

Find out more about who you can form a suport bubble with.

Once you’re in a support bubble, you can think of yourself as being in one 'household'.

What you can do

Once you are in a support bubble you can:

  • have close contact with the other household as if they were members of your own household
  • visit each other's room if your support bubble is within the same University residence
  • visit their accommodation if they are not in an other University residence

You also don't need to maintain social distance with people in your support bubble. You should continue to follow social distancing guidance with people outside of your household or support bubble.

What you can't do

You can't:

  • form a support bubble with a household that is part of another support bubble.
  • bring visitors into your University residence support bubble
  • invite the other household in your bubble to visit your accommodation if they don't live in your residence. This is to protect other students in your residence from an increased risk of coronavirus transmission.
