Social Distancing at LAMDA

As we gradually return to training at Talgarth Road, we've introduced a number of measures to keep everyone safe and well. This page will be regularly updated. It was last updated on 24 June 2020.

When should I come to Talgarth Road?

Please only come to in LAMDA if you are scheduled to do so.

If you are in a vulnerable group and have received a letter from Public Health England, forward a copy of the letter to the registrar today

If you are coming here, please walk or cycle if you are able to. Avoid public transport if you can. If you can’t avoid it, travel off peak, plan your journey to avoid busy routes and wear a face covering.

  • Don’t arrive more than 15 minutes before your call time.
  • Wear a mask as you arrive.
  • Enter the building through the Manny & Brigitta Davidson Foyer.
  • There will be a thermal imaging system installed.
  • Wash your hands as soon as you arrive and throughout the day. Soap and water and Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the building.
  • Follow the signs to guide you around the building’s one-way route.
  • On every door you will find a sign telling you what the maximum occupancy of the room is. This includes the toilets and kitchen areas. Do not exceed this, unless there is an emergency.
  • Always use the nearest facilities. Don’t move around the building more than you have to.
  • Bring what you need for the day. And take it with you when you leave. Anything left behind will be thrown away. This includes cups and plates. There will be no communal items available.
  • When using anything that isn't yours wash your hands before and after.
  • Leave the building via the Victorian lobby or the Undercroft.
  • Stay in your allocated studio.
  • You may remove your mask inside the studios if everyone there is comfortable and agrees.
  • Social distancing rules must always be followed.
  • Take note that voice projection and singing will increase transmission distance.
  • Do not leave anything behind in the studio at the end of your session.
  • Leave the building immediately.  
  • Do not touch anything as you leave. If you need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue and then bin it. If you do not have a tissue, sneeze or cough into the crook of your elbow. 
  • Return home immediately. 
  • Report your symptoms to your tutor. 
  • Follow government guidance on self-isolation and track-and-trace. 
  • If you are too unwell to travel, go to the meeting room on Level 1 in the West Wing. Inform facilities by calling 020 8834 0560 or sending a message over MS Teams. 

Comments and ideas can be sent to the Sarah Evans (Student Engagement and Quality Manager), Sean Sweeney (Facilities Manager) and the Student President team.

You will not be penalised if you feel the environment is not safe enough for you to study in.
