Coronavirus (COVID-19) &FAQs

Guidance and support

 

Welcome friends,

We hope you are safe and well. We continue to be as active as ever across campus and beyond whilst following government guidance, therefore, our staff and student executive are hybrid working from home and in our new Strath Union building on Richmond Street. A great deal of our contact has already taken place digitally and we still  have a lot of services online meaning you have access to more information at your convenience.

Please check out our Community Immunity Campaign which informs and supports actions students can take to ensure safety for Strathclyde’s campus community. 

We are excited to start welcoming back in person activity whilst staying within Government restrictions. We continue to have COVID safety measures in place such as sanitiser points, sign posting and we urge everyone to wear a mask whilst moving around the building (unless medically exempt)

We aim to share as much information as we can about our Union services throughout this pandemic and provide signposts to helpful resources. However, there will be questions we haven’t covered here and please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything else you want to know.
