Guides offer practical support for students and staff around COVID-19 recovery

The University has published five guides which outline practical advice and support for students and staff as we begin to see the easing of some lockdown measures in Scotland.  

Following on from the publication of the strategic Recovery Principles last week, the guides offer more in-depth information about how the University is delivering various aspects of the COVID-19 recovery work and the measures that are being put in place on campus to support people coming back to work and study. There is also additional support for staff who continue to work remotely during this period. 

The guides are available on the new Recovery Hub and cover: 

We have also published a Campus Management Plan, which details the comprehensive measures being put in place to manage a gradual return to work onsite, and how these will impact staff and students. 

Over the coming weeks, we will publish our own route map which will outline the longer-term stages of recovery, as well as the activity and timescales associated with these. 

Dr David Duncan, Chief Operating Officer and chair of the COVID-19 Recovery Steering Group, said: “These guides are designed to be useful and practical resources for staff and students who may be wondering how the University will operate over the coming weeks and months.  

Whilst we don’t have all the answers yet, they detail the comprehensive measures that we are already putting in place to ensure work can resume on our campus as safely and as soon as possible, and the support that we can offer to people who must continue to work remotely. I would encourage everyone to read the sections relevant to them and consider how the guidance may be applied to their own situations. 

“Over the coming weeks we will be publishing more information about various aspects of the recovery work, and we will aim to keep our staff and students well informed as this emerges.”
