Reopening and Access

What if I breach College Guidelines regarding COVID-19?

Any student who fails to follow College protocols or fails to quarantine in line with Scottish Government advice may be subject to College disciplinary procedures.

What if I'd like to visit a campus?

There is no access to College buildings without a timetabled class or a pre-booked appointment at the library.

I’m due on campus and had previously received a shielding letter?

If you previously received an official shielding letter you should contact your course leader and let them know and it might be helpful for you to contact our Learning Inclusion team who can discuss any support requirements you might have.

When can I access College buildings?

Under Level 3 restrictions, the College campuses will only be open to a small number of students whose learning is critical and time-sensitive learning, assessments and work placements that cannot be delivered remotely or postponed.  Your course leader will be in touch with you directly to let you know any changes

We are not open to other students or members of the public at present and any access must be through a pre-booked appointment.  We are continuing to follow the most up-to-date guidance from the Scottish Government and will provide any update as soon as the guidance allows.  Any specific questions should be directed to or the appropriate Faculty.

How will the College communicate with me?

We will continue to communicate with students through our social media channels.  You have also been given a college email account when as you enrolled.  It is really important that you use this email account as this will be one of the main ways that we communicate with you.

Will a register be taken when I’m on campus?

It is important your attendance at a campus is registered to ensure we can provide any details that should be needed to support public health track and trace arrangements.  Any attendance at one of the College libraries must be pre-booked.

What arrangements are being put in place to ensure that the College is properly cleaned and what extra precautions will be put in place?

The College has always maintained high cleaning standards.  Additional cleaning and housekeeping protocols have been agreed to ensure a safe environment for staff and students. 

The College is using a sanitising product called Zoono, which is a water-based product and has a gentle formulation. The product carries no Hazchem symbols, is readily biodegradable and therefore there is no environmental impact.  The product continues to work up to 30 days after application and has been risk assessed and a Safe System of Work created, which will be supported by training for staff.

What catering is available on campus?

Catering services are not available at this time. Students who are on campus all day are encourage to bring their own packed lunches and may sit in the canteen areas to eat, ensuring social distance is maintained from others / other groups.

Has the College purchased new hand sanitiser stations?

Yes, there will be additional hand sanitising dispensers throughout the College.  These will be located at all entrances, exits, within stairwells, lift lobbies as well as on each floor.

Can I still contact the College?

Yes, staff are still working remotely and the College can be contacted on 0141 272 9000 or by email
