Notification of symptoms or self-isolation

If you have symptoms of Covid-19, have had a positive test result, or are otherwise required to self-isolate, please let us know using the relevant form on this page.


It is important the university is aware as soon as possible of all cases of Covid-19 in our community of staff, students and visitors, as well as those with symptoms or who are required to self-isolate.

This will help us take swift action where appropriate to minimise the risk to others and enable us to liaise with external bodies such as Public Health England and local authorities to ensure that actions are effective and proportionate. As per UK government guidelines, if you have symptoms of coronavirus you (and all members of your household, if not fully vaccinated) must self-isolate until you have your test results.

Student notification process

When you use the form below or email us to report symptoms or self-isolation, you can access some additional support.

Depending on where you live, we may be able to bring a postal testing kit to your door if you are unable to use the drive-through testing facility in Nottingham city centre. We may also be able to support you with essential supplies during your isolation.

If you are self-isolating and/or have symptoms of Covid-19 and/or have received a test result from either the NHS or the university's testing service, let us know as soon as possible.

Fill in the form below as soon as you have symptoms or are self-isolating, and again if your test returns positive.
