The health, safety and wellbeing of students, staff and visitors is our top priority. With that in mind we are making some changes to campus for the new term. Here’s a few of the safety measures we are putting in place.
New signage to advise on physical distancing
One-way systems for getting around some parts of campus
Changes to entry and exit points for some buildings
Enhanced cleaning to make study, teaching and social spaces safe
Additional hand sanitising stations and cleaning materials throughout campus
Sanitising wipes available for safer use of electronic equipment
The Scottish Government currently advises that face coverings should be worn in enclosed spaces where physical distancing is difficult and you might come into close contact with a lot of people. With that in mind you may wish to bring a face covering with you to wear while inside some campus buildings. Please remember it is also mandatory to wear them in shops and on public transport. If you would like advice on this please contact the Support Enquiry Zone.
If you develop any symptoms of Coronavirus do not attend campus and self-isolate at your home or student residence. Symptoms include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
If you develop any of these:
return to your home or residence
self-isolate for 7 days
arrange a test immediately
let your programme leader know
If you live in a residence, let staff know
If you’re new to Dundee you should register with a doctor – a general practitioner. Abertay has no medical centre on campus but the Hillbank Health Centre is a short walk from the University and dedicates one hour each day solely for Abertay students.
