Safety, Hygiene and Health

The health, safety and wellbeing of students, staff and visitors is our top priority. Here are a few of the safety measures we have in place on campus. 

  • Signage to advise on physical distancing. 

  • Face coverings required in communal areas/corridors and all areas of Library

  • Two-way system for getting around campus. 

  • 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.  

Everyone must follow the Test & Protect procedure. Find out more on our Testing and Advice information page.


Wearing face coverings 

Face coverings should be worn in all communal areas and corridors on campus and in all areas of the Library, including when seated at a study station. All students, staff and visitors must bring a face covering with them to campus, unless exempt for medical reasons. If you would like advice on this please contact the Support Enquiry Zone. 

What to do if you develop Coronavirus symptoms   

If you develop any of the symptoms of Coronavirus:

  • do not attend campus

  • self-isolate at your home or student residence immediately

  • book a test

  • inform the University and your accommodation provider

Symptoms include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.  

You can get more information on the symptoms of Coronavirus and how to arrange a test at NHS Inform. If you need any assistance contact the Support Enquiry Zone at  

Register with a doctor 

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.  

You can find more information in our FAQs.

Risk Assessment for staff

We have a risk assessment policy in line with Scottish Government guidance for COVID-19.

For staff who are working on campus, please download all the information you need from the intranet.
