Stirling Campus Pledge

The University of Stirling campus community includes students, staff and visitors. All COVID rules and restrictions have been lifted in Scotland, but it is important to follow guidelines and stay vigilant. To protect everyone, we are asking every student and staff member to commit to the Campus Pledge on this page.

Your responsibility

The University and Students' Union have worked to minimise and mitigate risks, to make sure our campus remains a safe and welcoming environment for everyone who studies, lives, works or visits here. 

As a student or staff member, you have a responsibility to help minimise the health risks to yourself and our wider University and local community. We are asking everyone to commit to the Stirling Campus Pledge.

This is an important contribution that helps to protect your health, safety and wellbeing. It also shows consideration for the entire University of Stirling community and beyond. 

You can find out more about everything we're doing to keep you safe, and our Stirling Campus Commitment, on our Changes at Stirling pages.
