Restrictions on Visitors in the Manchester Student Accommodation

For many students, moving into their new student accommodation in the city is a big deal. They have chosen this place to make their own home away from home, surrounded by people like themselves, who are interested in similar things and share some of the same interests. It is also a space that has been carefully designed with focus, relaxation and sustainability in mind. At Element, each studio has been elegantly crafted for student life and is adorned with oxygenating plantlife to promote a healthy living environment.

But, as universities reopen in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, how these spaces will be managed has been subject to a lot of debate. For example, one prestigious English university made headlines for putting new clauses in Manchester student accommodation contracts that would allow them to evict students at short notice if restrictions were to be enforced. Other universities are making changes to how students can use and interact with their communal student housing.

As part of their coronavirus advice pages, some universities have outlined how they will be managing their on-campus student accommodation. For example, Nottingham says that all student halls will be sanitised for when students arrive and they will have a dedicated cleaning programme in place. Their sanitiser stations will be located in every kitchen and stairwell area. They will also be implementing a ‘kitchen group’ system where students will be allocated to a kitchen with other groups of students which they can then socialise with freely, provided social distancing is maintained.
