Here at ICMP, we’re hugely proud of the supportive nature of our learning community. It’s one of the main benefits of studying at a specialist institution, and our ‘family atmosphere’ is often mentioned by students as the thing they appreciate most about ICMP during their time with us.

For those joining us, please know we’ll work extra hard to keep our much-loved community safe and well. In 2020, we carried out an extensive risk assessment to ensure our Kilburn campus is a COVID-secure facility, introducing a range of UK Government-recommended health and safety measures. These included social distancing, enhanced cleaning, improved sanitation facilities, and special protocols for dealing with on-site sickness.

But, moving forward there are certain things students, staff and visitors can do to keep our environment as safe as possible, too. So, when you visit our Kilburn campus, there are seven actions we’d like you to take:

1Keep your distance – please follow social distancing guidelines, keeping the recommended distance apart from others (currently two metres) and following the marked routes around the building.

2Wear a face mask – where social distancing guidelines aren’t possible, please use face coverings. Take one at the building’s entrance.

3Wash your hands regularly – sanitation stations have been set up at entrance and exit points on every floor.

4Stay home if you feel unwell – please don’t come to campus if you’ve recently experienced a temperature/fever, persistent cough, vomiting, diarrhoea or a loss of taste or smell.

5Tell the Facilities Desk if you’re unwell – if you start to feel ill on campus, please let us know as soon as possible.

6Get tested – to keep our community safe, you must produce a negative Lateral Flow Test (LFT) result, taken within the previous five days, before visiting the ICMP campus.

7Check in– please tap in and out of ICMP buildings each time you enter or leave, so we know who is on campus at all times and can monitor building capacity.

We’ve also enhanced our cleaning and hygiene procedures, and improved air circulation, ventilation and stage design to allow for separate performance activities.

Please know your safety is our top priority and we’re doing our upmost to ensure your student life is as full as it can be. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, or read our Coronavirus FAQS for more information.
