Campus Life

Most learning is currently taking place online due to Tier 4 arrangements in place.  However the information below may be helpful for anyone who is required to come on campus.

Unable to Come to College

Most learning is currently taking place online. However if students are required to come on campus and they have any concerns then they should contact their department as soon as possible.

Arriving on Campus

Most learning is currently taking place online.  However if you are required to come on campus you must ensure you use the hand sanitiser provided. Please go straight to class and do not gather in groups.

Campus Navigation

The College is currently operating a keep left system, which is clearly marked by yellow signs. Physical distancing is in line with the latest Scottish Government Guidance and is clearly marked with signage throughout the campus. These measures must be adhered to at all times. Corridor doors will remain open to reduce the touching of hard surfaces.

Toilets

All campus toilets are in operation across all campuses without any restrictions. However, users must adhere to physical distancing guidelines.

Showers and Changing Facilities

All shower and changing facilities are in operation without any restrictions. Users should ensure they change within a cubicle.

Lockers

Students should use lockers as normal and wash or sanitise hands before and after. Lockers within the workshops are opened and closed by a technician at set times during the day.

Lifts

Lifts on campus are restricted to single person occupancy and this is clearly marked with a yellow sign. However, this does not affect those who are accompanied by a carer on campus. To assist in maintaining the cleanliness of the lift system, we ask that only individuals with mobility or other issues (plus carer where needed) who cannot use the stairs, use the lifts. All other college users must use the stairs.
