Students’ Union Arrivals events
The Students' Union is hosting a series of online events from 11 January to welcome you and help you get to know Westminster and your fellow students.
Visiting our COVID-19 secure campuses
In August 2020, we reopened most of our buildings after taking extensive measures to ensure these are COVID-19 secure.
Access remains restricted and you are only permitted to visit our COVID-19 secure buildings if you are attending an event on your timetable or if you have a booking. Please do not arrive on campus unless you have been invited or have a booked appointment, as access will be refused.
If you do have a timetabled or booked event on campus, please ensure you've viewed our safety video from our Vice-Chancellor to help keep you and those around you safe. We all have a collective responsibility to ensure that we keep our buildings COVID-19 secure.
For more information, please visit our Coronavirus response page.
