The UCFB/GIS community takes pride in working together to protect each other on campus, in halls of residence and in our local area.

We trust that our entire community will take responsibility for their own health and safety. We expect all of our staff and students to demonstrate respect and consideration for those around them by acting in a way which promotes care, kindness and responsibility. We require students to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct by behaving in a responsible manner, complying with reasonable requests from staff, and adhering to our health and safety policies.

As a member of the UCFB/GIS community, I choose to commit to the ‘UCFBeSafe’ Pledge to help stop the spread of COVID-19. I pledge to take responsibility for my own health, and I will help keep the UCFB/GIS community safe from the spread of COVID-19 by adhering to UCFB instructions and guidance.

  • Washing my hands often with soap and water and use hand sanitiser;
  • Monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 and reporting any concerns to the UCFB/GIS student services team;
  • Following any guidance and advice provided to me by UCFB/GIS or my medical professional

Protect others by:
