The latest University to institute a soft lockdown on students is the University of Exeter wherein they asked the students not to socialized even in other people's residences and only limit their interactions to the people within their household.
Recent reports show that majority of the confirmed cases in Exeter were linked and traced back to the University, over the last week.

According to Metro, for the next 14 days, all lectures, seminars, and classes for first-year students at the University will be done virtually via online classrooms.
On the other hand, Gavin Williamson confirmed that students from the University will have to cut their term and will do self-isolation for a fortnight in order to be allowed home for Christmas.
The government is currently being criticized for its handling of the pandemic, as it already spread to university campuses, even freshers around the country are being locked down inside the colleges' halls and advised to just isolate with those who are they living with.
Because of the ongoing safety measures, students are just posting on their social media accounts, photos of their schoolmates putting up signs on the windows of their accommodation blocks which was shared widely on social media platforms, while other students are begging for help with supplies and foods.
Some of the students even tried to get shopping delivery which only shows that some are already running out of food and some parents are turning up to the halls with bags of groceries for their children.
