What to do if you feel unwell or receive a positive Covid-19 test result

By QMHalls 01 Sep 2021

If you develop symptoms of Covid-19, contact Residences Reception immediately for advice at: or by calling: 020 7882 6470. Residences Reception is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

You should also notify the University by emailing:

If you live in the same flat (household) as someone who tests positive, you will also need to self-isolate unless:

  1. You have been fully vaccinated within the UK more than 14 days prior to the positive case
  2. You are under the age of 18 years and 6 months
  3. You are taking part in authorised clinical trials for Covid-19
  4. There is a medical reason why you cannot be vaccinated

Once Residences Reception receive notification of a positive case, they will email all of the residents within the flat (household) informing them that they will need to self-isolate unless they inform us in writing that one of the above applies.

All residents should continue to take regular lateral flow tests (twice weekly) and follow the guidance on the dedicated Queen Mary Coronavirus advice and update page.
