Protecting Yourself and Others

Guidelines on how to protect yourself and others from contracting COVID-19.

What do I need to do to protect myself and others from COVID-19 whilst studying on campus at NCAD?

Vaccination: If you have not already availed of the opportunity to be vaccinated and/or boostered against COVID-19 , we encourage you to do so now - the public health advice is very clear that take-up of vaccines is the best way we can protect one another and open up activities, including those in universities. Vaccination is a matter of individual choice however and not compulsory to attend classes on campus.

The booster programme is open to everyone over the age of 16, and you can book your booster appointment in a HSE vaccination clinic, chemist or GP. More information is available here. More information on Covid-19 Vaccinations can be found here.

Masks: Masks are mandatory at all times while indoors on the NCAD campus. These can be removed while eating at your desk, if you are a 2m distance from those around you. Other than this, they must be worn for the duration of the day.

Santitise: Clean your hands regularly either by washing them or using the sanitising stations provided. You should sanitize your hands before entering and upon leaving buildings, and before/after using any tools or materials that may be used by another student after you. 

Studios: Students should remain in their studios as timetabled. If you need to visit another department for an educational purpose, please contact your Head of Department. 

Guidelines: We ask that all students stay up-to-date with the latest Covid-19 Guidelines. More information on COVID-19 can be found at the links below:
