Stirling for 2020
The Stirling Campus Commitment
As you prepare for the new semester, we know you’ll be looking forward to enjoying everything the city and University have to offer. On this page, you'll find out what you need to know and what you need to do ahead of coming to campus – virtually or in person.
We're excited to welcome you back onto our spacious campus. We’re doing everything we can to make sure you feel safe at all times, and are closely following Scottish Government guidance, in particular, their encouragement to remember FACTS:
- Face coverings
- Avoid crowded places
- Clean your hands regularly
- Two-metre distance
- Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms
Above all, please rest assured that even though there are some challenges, we’re working to make your Stirling experience enriching, exciting, and memorable.
"At Stirling, we are proud of our outstanding teaching, research excellence, award-winning facilities, diverse campus community and vibrant student life.
We remain committed to delivering the Stirling experience – albeit, for the time being, in new and innovative ways. At the centre of this commitment is the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and the wider community.
We are implementing new and enhanced measures for our autumn semester that will keep you safe while at the same time allowing our campus buildings to reopen, services to be reinstated, and the resumption of some face-to-face teaching in small groups.
Please refer regularly to these pages for further information. I look forward to welcoming you to campus."
