COVID-19: advice for staff and students

COVID-19: Advice for Students, Staff & Community

The Coronavirus outbreak continues to be a fast-paced and evolving situation. The University has been monitoring it closely and is taking government and health authority guidance.

Robert Gordon University has closed the campus buildings to staff and students from 5pm on Friday 20 March. Although face-to-face teaching has been suspended for the foreseeable future, the university is working to minimise any disruption to the students’ learning experience. The university remains operational, and staff will continue to assist students albeit remotely. Alternative teaching arrangements has been made available from Thursday 19 March.

We understand that this is a period of great uncertainty, but our planning is guided by advice from the Scottish government and public health authority. We are also in regular correspondence with other Scottish universities to exchange information on how they are responding to this fast-changing situation.

These pages outline the measures students, staff and members of our wider community can take to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 infection, and the steps we have taken as a university to prepare.

We will review the guidance regularly to ensure it is in line with the government’s action plan and will contact our students and staff by email if there are any significant changes.
