Self-Isolating Support


Ensuring a Safe and Comfortable Arrival

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Ulster University!  The health and safety of our staff and students is our first priority and preparations are underway, within local government guidelines, to ensure our campuses are safe for your arrival.

The UK Government currently requires those arriving from certain international destinations to quarantine for 14 days.  If you are arriving into Northern Ireland from a country listed here as exempt, you will not have to self-isolate.

If you are arriving into Northern Ireland from any other country, we have put in place a range of supportive measures to ensure you are safe and comfortable while you self-isolate and prepare to start life at UU!


Where You Will Stay

Our University-managed accommodation provides a high-quality and safe place for you to self-isolate.  It’s also some of the most affordable student accommodation Northern Ireland has to offer.

All students who are required to self-isolate will stay in Dalriada Village on our Jordanstown campus.

Dalriada Village contains a range of self-catering apartments, each with up to five rooms allowing you to start settling in and making friends.

Each apartment will operate as its own individual household, therefore, maintaining social distancing within your apartment will not be necessary. You’ll be able to get to know your flatmates comfortably and safely.

To ensure your safety, extra cleaning measures will be put in place for shared entrances and stairwells leading to apartment blocks.
