Refunds for Halls of Residence Students

The University has confirmed that a 100% rent credit will be given to any students who have not been able to return. An email has been sent to those affected so please take a look at your student emails. 

Information for Campus Students

'Following last night’s government announcement about the national lockdown, we are working through the guidelines and awaiting further details from the Department for Education.

We will email students and staff as soon as possible to explain what the new restrictions mean for you. Please keep an eye on your University inbox.

In the meantime, it is important that students remain at their current address – whether at their home/vacation address or in their term-time accommodation – to minimise transmission of the virus. The latest government guidance can be viewed here: https://gov.uk/coronavirus' - Leeds Trinity University

Frequently Asked Question

Q: I was planning on going back to my accommodation on Monday, am I still able to do so? 

A: The government advises against all non-essential travel for the duration of lockdown. Check your student emails for information about campus halls of residence. In exceptional circumstances please seek advice from the Student Support team at the University as they will be able to provide up to date guidance for you. 

Q: Will grade boundaries be lowered with us being taught online and lack of resources? 

A: President Chelsey is in discussions with the university to reinstate the No Detriments policy. An update will be provided asap. Please use the Academic Voice Form on the myLTU app to give feedback regarding your learning/teaching experience.

Q: Bring back the no detriment policy!

Q: I use public transport to get to uni, will that make any difference to lessons?

A: Most classes will be taught online, to help adhere to the government advisory against all but essential travel. If you do have a class on campus remember to follow the hands, face and space advice. Once on campus, there are one-way systems in place to help guide you through the building enabling you to keep good distance at all time.

A: Academic support can be sought through SU Advice (book an appointment), personal tutors, and the peer learning mentors. 

Q: Why isn't there leniency for uni students but there is for secondary and college students?

A: I know this can feel incredibly unfair and stressful, as more guidance and advice comes from the government we will update you. Just remember you are doing great and we are really proud of Trinity students who we know are working so hard.

If you are struggling please book an SU advice appointment to get 1:1 support and information regarding mental health, wellbeing and more. 

Q: Feel like my last assignments have been poor due to lack of resources...

A: We understand this is a frustrating time for many students. If you do not have the resources you need please get in touch and we can help resolve any issues.

A: 'Yes, whilst students remain in halls there will be a food provider open for those who are unable to leave campus.' - President Chesley Grooby.
