Campus access arrangements

In line with Scottish Government guidance, our default position is that staff should continue to work from home where possible.  

Authorisation and local logistical arrangements for accessing buildings that are open should be coordinated via your line manager and the Head of School/Service (HoSor equivalent. It is important to do this, even if the building status is now open, as some areas still have local restrictions in placeThis will ensure that your activity on campus adheres to the relevant health and safety requirements and that cleaning can be arranged accordingly. 

All staff coming onto campus under any circumstances must have completed the “Return to Campus” Moodle course.

If you wish to temporarily access one a building to pick up equipment or material to support remote working, you can make a request to do so via the UofG Helpdesk.


The Daily Operations Team meeting in Estates reviews and controls access of contractors to buildings across Campus. This is essential to ensure the safety of our staff, students, visitors and contractors and to communicate and coordinate contractors’ activities across all of our buildings.    

If you need to bring Contractors on campus please email the Operations Team [ that access can be authorised and added to our Contractor Log. It should be noted that If the contractor is not listed on the Contractor Log, access may be delayed or refused. 

It may be necessary from time to time to arrange Janitorial support for contractor access and by contacting this email address these arrangements can be authorised and put in place. 

A notification period of at least one week is required for out of hours and/or weekend cover.  

Please note, the University member of staff who brings the contractors onto campus has a responsibility for all aspects of the contractors work and behaviour during their time on campus. 

Upon attendance the contractors must use the sign in and out books present in buildings they are accessing. 


All visitors to buildings must use the sign in and out books and will only be authorised to access buildings. 

In addition, safety arrangements must be made for visitors and those hosting them must ensure that they are clear on the COVID-19 arrangements for the building and campus.
