Parents, we understand that your children leaving home for a considerable time to study is tough sometimes, but we just want to reassure you with how safe they are safe when they stay with us, especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic!
Since the pandemic began, we have been on site every working day with no interruption. We made this work throughout home office and quarantine and even offered a virtual reception during the first couple of months of the pandemic. with staff constantly monitoring the guidelines in our area(s) to make sure that the same is broken down and told to students to make sure that we are all as protected as can be. The team itself lives up to this standard every day and makes sure masks are worn in all places.
Students have all that they need in their room, especially should rules change or there is a need to self-quarantine - this includes their own bedroom space, kitchen and study areas. Whilst we understand that self-quarantining is far from ideal for students, it is important that we all do our part, and that is why staff will conduct welfare checks and collect/deliver groceries for those in their rooms, take care of laundry if needed and collect trash.
If this pandemic has taught us anything about friendship, it’s that we have adapted to a world where friends don’t just come together in person, but get on just as well online as well. Whilst we do host COVID safe events occasionally, we also host a selection of online events where students can get to know each other from the comfort of their own space. Not only that, but the high quality Wi-Fi is included in their rental.
All of the communal areas in our residences are currently sectioned in ways that students are able to safely social distance but still get a feel for community, see their friends and interact together. Spaces are regularly cleaned and sanitized, with antibacterial hand gel available in multiple places throughout the journey from the residence front door to the apartment front door. We don’t know what the next months will bring, but with the procedures we have set up we can adopt quickly to every scenario.
The health and wellbeing of students staying with us is of upmost importance to all and we hope that we’ve reassured you that we are one of the safest places to stay right now. If you do have any more questions or would like to speak to a member of staff, please check our FAQ’s here, or contact us.
