Guidance for students attending classes
Before you arrive
Think about how you'll get to campus and check the latest guidance.
Download the Protect Scotland app.
Only bring what you need to campus – and remember you can't share equipment.
Bring a face covering, unless you are medically exempt.
If you want to use the library while you are on campus, check booking arrangements and our click and collect service.
Do not come to campus if you or a household member is feeling unwell, has any COVID-19 symptoms or is awaiting the results of a test. Let your module co-ordinator know.
When you're on campus
When you're on campus, here are the things you need to do to keep yourself and others safe.
When you arrive on campus, you need to scan in twice. Once when you enter the building and again when you enter your classroom. You do not need to scan into different buildings during the rest of the day, but you do need to scan into each classroom you enter separately. By scanning the QR codes you will get access to a short form you need to complete.
For ease, you can also use the University of Stirling App to access the form. On the teaching room form, you will be confirming that you and members of your household are not feeling unwell and have no symptoms of COVID-19 and are not awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.
Wear a face covering
You should wear a face covering in all teaching and learning spaces when Stirling is in Level 3 or 4 of the Scottish Government COVID protection levels). See further guidance on the use of face coverings.
During scheduled breaks in teaching, you can stay in your current room and eat your lunch/snacks and drink. Food outlets are open on campus and you can order food on campus via the new app.
Cleaning your area
At the end of the teaching session, you should clean the area you have used, using the sanitising wipes available to cleanse all surfaces.
Moving around the campus
