Working and learning safely

Information for all users of the History Faculty and Seeley Library

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the History Faculty will take special precautions to ensure that all its members can stay safe. All teaching is now online, and there will be few occasions on which use of the Faculty Building is permitted by staff and students, who are all asked to work remotely, with the exception of library staff. The Seeley Library is currently closed for study purposes. 'Click and collect' materials may still be ordered, but will now be collected from the external door of the Faculty building at a pre-booked time. 

We ask that everyone does their best to observe the regulations and treat all around them with patience and respect, despite the challenges we face.

The latest university guidance can be found here

    Anyone who does have a reason to enter the Faculty must 

    • Scan the NHS QR code when you enter the building
    • Sanitise hands on entry
    • Wear a face covering in the building (unless exempt), except when working alone in an office with the door closed
    • Maintain 2m distance from others at all times
    • Observe the one way system in the Faculty building

    If you have any symptoms, please follow the instructions issued by the University about testing and self isolation.

    Teaching will begin as planned on January 21st, but entirely online. There will not be any in-person teaching in the Faculty until the Easter term, and you should look on the relevant moodle site for the link to online teaching for all your papers. Asymptomatic testing will resume on January 18th. Remote study arrangements will continue unchanged.

    The following links will give you some further detail about our new procedures, and who to contact if you have any concerns.
