24 March 2020: Advice for research staff and research students

Issued: Tue, 24 Mar 2020 11:30:00 GMT

Dear Colleagues,

As outlined in the communication on Tuesday 24 March 2020, staff and research students must now remain at home unless they are in an essential category of worker. There has also been an immediate reduction in the number of buildings that will be accessible.

I realise that the pandemic is causing considerable disruption to your work and your lives, and that you will be concerned about your projects and your colleagues. We are working hard internally and with the sector at Scottish and UK levels to monitor the impact of the situation and to identify options for addressing it.

I have tried to cover the most important queries that you might have at this stage in a dedicated section on our coronavirus FAQ page: 


As this is an evolving situation, I recommend that you check our FAQs regularly.


Please stay safe.

Vice Principal for Research
