Safety Hub

We have now launched our new safety hub to keep everyone safe. There is a lot to digest but pelase read each element very carefully. The more you use this, the safer the UEA community will be.

There are to key principles to follow, when it comes to student group activity:

Two Key Principles are:


  • The majority of your activity should be online and socials must be online until social gathering government advice changes
  • COVID Secure activities can go ahead in strict adherence to COVID Secure guidelines as approved by UEASU and UEA Sport.

These rules will be reviewed on October the 31st 2020, we will reissue the guidance then. We will at all points follow the government guidance, where restrictions are eased we will do the same as well as the opposite.

So we have produced some guides:
