Guidance on the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak


Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, our buildings are closed until further notice.

We want to reassure everyone that classes will still be delivered online for our students and we will continue to keep services running through online contact methods where we can. Although subject to change as we are still in a fast-moving situation, our plans for reopening can be seen here. We have also developed ‘Return to Campus guides’: one for staff, and one for students.

Our Residences will remain open and we will continue to support students who have to stay in residences.

As and when there are further changes, we will distribute updates as soon as possible. Staff and students are requested to monitor their email accounts, and check  this web page, Facebook and Twitter.  The Scottish Government have created a student information website for key information.

Our Climbing Centre and Academy of Sport and Wellbeing are also closed, although everyone can access online fitness classes via the ASW Facebook page

We have a list of FAQs that are regularly updated, and University-wide information can be found at
