Coronavirus Update

Please keep updated with the latest advice from KCL. 

In line with guidance from the government and due to student staff shortages, we are implementing social distancing measures and this will result in our venues and spaces being unavailable. 

More information will follow direct to people who have booked the space.

KCLSU Officers

To our beloved students,

In light of the events that have unfolded due to the spread of COVID-19, we welcome KCL’s announcement that it will soon transition to online learning and assessments for most students. This is an important step for the university and KCLSU will mirror the approach going forward. We also wanted to share a short note on the steps we are taking to keep everyone safe:

Events, spaces and venues

The University and KCLSU remain open where practical - but we will begin to transition to providing more services remotely from Monday 23rd March. You may notice reduced hours at our venues and spaces depending on staff availability and student demand.

If you are booked on an event on campus or field trip with your KCLSU student club or society affected by current events they should be in touch with you direct around next steps. For any events run by KCLSU on campus that are affected, we will be in touch via the email address you used to purchase a ticket.

Stay up to date

We encourage you to regularly familiarise yourself with the coronavirus FAQs on the KCL website and guidance of Public Health England as it updates. If you are self-isolating please follow Public Health England advice and let KCL know by emailing questions@kcl.ac.uk. You can access KCLSU advice for free, confidential and impartial academic advice on issues affecting your studies.

We ask all students to monitor their KCL email accounts closely for further information from KCL, their faculties and us. These are indeed unprecedented times and therefore we humbly ask everyone to approach each other with a generosity of spirit.

#ForeverKings

Finally, we wanted to pay tribute to all the brave medical staff, scientists and researchers on the frontlines of this fight. #ForeverKings.
