Let us know your plans for the winter break

Dear students,

We are working hard to ensure we can support students to safely leave York at the end of term, as well as supporting those that want (or need) to remain on campus during the holiday period.

To help with this, we’d like to know where all our students are over the break so that we can provide appropriate support: please complete the e:Vision task no later than 1 December. The questions are in the ‘Your Study’ section; scroll down to the Covid 19 Information section and select 'Your study location for the winter break’.

If you remain on campus, there will be a range of services and activities available on campus over the break.

If you plan to leave York, please take a look at our travel advice.

If you plan to leave for other parts of the UK, the University is working with the UK Government and the NHS to offer free rapid results covid testing to students with no symptoms from 30 November. You can find out more about rapid results testing and book a test by visiting the End of term Covid-19 testing web page. If you are currently living in university accommodation, we are trying to make sure you can leave campus in a safe and organised way by booking a departure slot.

Find out more about arrangements to support you leaving campus on the End of term: travelling home webpage.

If you are not currently in York and will not be in York over the winter break, please still update your status in e:Vision so that we can continue to offer you support.

I will be in touch again with more updates and would like to thank you again for your patience. Keep safe.
