Updated 30 March 2022.

Advice for students, staff and Fellows

In light of UK Government changes to COVID measures in England the College has altered its guidance.

All members of College are strongly encouraged to:

  • Get fully vaccinated.
  • Wear a mask in public spaces, particularly in queues, meeting rooms and other indoor spaces where there are many people.
  • Open windows for ventilation in meeting rooms and other communal spaces.


What to do if you have COVID symptoms:  

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 you are encouraged to get tested. The University’s Testing Pod on Fen Causeway will continue to operate until further notice. This is open to staff, Fellows and students.

Alternatively, you can order a free PCR test or book an appointment at a walk-in or drive-through test site.

Students are asked to inform the University of test results: COVID monitoring form | University of Cambridge

While you are no longer required by law to self-isolate if you have COVID-19, you are strongly advised to stay in your room/at home and avoid contact with others.


If you feel unwell (and even if you don’t know your COVID status) you are advised to take the following action:

Students: please avoid contact with others as far as possible, and let your friends and bedmaker know that you feel ill.

Please do not attend lectures, Supervisions or social events until you feel better (and ideally have undertaken the testing as advised by the government).

Please let your Supervisor know you are unwell so that arrangements regarding teaching can be made.

You may choose to take an LFD test from five days after your symptoms started, followed by another LFD test the next day. If both these test results are negative, and you do not have a high temperature, you can return to your normal routine.

Staff: please do not come to work if you feel ill. Please let your line manager or head of department know. Trinity’s regular sick policy applies.

All members of College:

Free NHS LFD tests are no longer available.
