Safer Living Environment
During this time of uncertainty and hesitation, we know how you might be feeling as the new academic year approaches. To have confidence in the environment in which you are living is paramount. Here at Uninest, we are committed to providing you with a safe, welcoming home. We will always deliver the ultimate student living experience, and we cannot wait to meet you.
Confidence In Where You Live
All our residences have a dedicated operations and maintenance team who keep our buildings clean, hygienic and well maintained. If things break or go wrong, we’ll fix them quickly and cheerfully. We are introducing new health and safety practices to ensure that
Our 24/7 residence teams continue to provide the familiar high standard of service, whilst ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the community. In addition to the usual CCTV, secure access control and life safety systems you would expect to find in our buildings, we will also utilise
Wellbeing - help is at hand
We all need a helping hand sometimes which is why we’re here to support you every step of the way
Being part of a connected community is a key part to university life, and whilst we are all adhering to social distancing guidelines, human interaction, community spirit and a feeling of togetherness has never been so important. At Uninest you can continue to feel connected to your friends and loved ones
The New Normal
We all have an important part to play to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When you arrive at your residence you will notice that we have made some changes to our buildings to help keep you and others safe. We’ve outlined a few of these changes below and you’ll receive some more information about specific changes in your residence closer to when you arrive.
Where possible, our communal areas (such as common rooms, study rooms, laundry rooms etc.) will be open for you to use, however there may be restrictions on how many of our students can use the spaces at a time. We will be cleaning the spaces regularly and asking students to ensure they wear PPE (where appropriate) and adhere to local social distancing measures.
Our wonderful teams will still be available to support you throughout your stay, however you will notice we’ve made a few changes to reception areas in some of our residences. Protective screens have been installed to protect both students and staff, as well as social distancing signage and sanitising stations.
Moving around the building
To help make sure we’re adhering to social distancing in all of our residences, we will provide signage to inform you and in some residences you may be required to walk through a ‘one way or keep left system’ when moving around the building.
Please ensure you are following government guidelines on where and when to wear a mask or face covering.
Our lifts will be operating at one person or one household at a time.
Living in a new city
We know that many of you will be travelling to a different city (or perhaps a different country) when you come to live with us. There are a lot of new government guidelines in place that vary from country to country and in some places are different by city. Look for local government guidelines to find out how COVID-19 is affecting your new city. The guidelines will cover information about local grocery stores, how you can visit friends as well as travelling on public transport.
Playing your part
You can help to make sure you and your fellow students stay safe by following these guidelines.
