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 Government guidelines, if you have symptoms of coronavirus you and all members of your household must self-isolate until you have your test results.

Please complete the form below or call 0115 748 4800 regardless of whether or not you have been on campus in the last few days (unless you remain fully on furlough, in which case you do not need to notify HR). You should also notify your line manager in addition, of any absence or difficulties caused by illness or self-isolation.


When you use the forms below or email the helpline 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, please fill in the Student symptoms & self-isolation form. If you have taken a test for COVID-19 please fill in the Student test outcome form to notify the University.


Visitors to campus
If you have been on campus in the last seven days, and have symptoms of coronavirus or have tested positive, please call 0115 748 4800.
