It's nearly time for you to be back studying and learning with us and we're very excited to have you back.
Life is very different now and for the times you are on campus, it will be different too. We have spent the summer months getting our campuses ready to welcome you in a safe and comfortable way.
We are fully compliant with all Scottish Government guidance and we are doing everything possible to make our campuses safe for our students and staff.
Please read all the information below as it will tell you what you need to do to safely access our campuses.
We hope you are looking forward to being back at University as much as we are looking forward to having you with us.
Being on campus
We have introduced floor markings, directional signage, one-way entrance and exits, and a number of other changes all designed to help keep you safe.
Please look out for these and follow all the guidance when moving around campus.
Always maintain social distancing and turn up for class on time to reduce queuing. Also, if you do not require to be in the campus you are encouraged to leave as soon as the class has finished.
Please respect each other and follow good manners and behaviour and always be courteous where access is restricted e.g. narrow corridors and stairs.
A one-way system will be implemented across our campuses. There will be floor markings and signage to guide you throughout the building. Where queues are likely to form, it is essential that we respect each other and maintain a safe distance of two metres.
Before coming into campus, do a check on both your own and your household’s health and check you are feeling well. (Note: household can also mean other people you share accommodation with).
Do not come to the university if you or anyone you live with has:
- A high temperature (above 37.8C)
- A new continuous cough
- A change to sense of smell or taste
If you or others in your household do not feel well or if there is any doubt, please stay at home and let your school know you are unwell.
You must not attend classes and should visit www.nhsinform.scot where you can book a test online and find further information. You can also book a test by calling 0800 028 2816.
We will be recording attendance in all on-campus classes, in line with Scottish Government guidance. This will be done by using the iNapier app.
App to access campus
We will be introducing a new way to tell us when you're on campus. We will be asking all students and staff to use the iNapier app to scan a QR Code when arriving on campus.
This will allow you to register your attendance on campus.
We will have posters with QR codes near the entrances of all our campuses and throughout our buildings.
Please only use the iNapier app to read the QR code as it will not activate using other QR code readers.
The app will be introduced during the early part of trimester one, and we will give you an update to let you know more once it has been put in place.
All students looking to book space on campus or use University equipment must now do so by using the new Resource Booker system.
If you are looking to use a lab, PC, laptop, library space, or anything else that’s not part of your timetable, you need to use the Resource Booker to book them before coming on to campus.
We have created this booker to allow students to access space and equipment in a safe and socially-distanced way.
The booker also allows you to manage your bookings and cancel them if you no longer need them.
It is easy to use and can be accessed by visiting Resource Booker on myNapier. It is also always on the side bar on myNapier. You can also access them by using the iNapier app. Click here to find out how to download the app.
If you have any questions about accessing Resource Booker, contact the IS Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laptop loan scheme
The University’s laptop loan scheme will be available from the beginning of Trimester 1, allowing you to borrow a laptop. Click here to find out more about this scheme on myNapier.
Our campus computers will also be available to use, provided you book a space on Resource Booker.
The Student Charter is one of the most important documents of your university experience. It explains how you are to behave as a student and has been updated to reflect the new world of Covid-19.
It includes key information about your responsibilities as students and it is vital that you read it thoroughly and comply.
Please remember that you are always representing the University and we have high expectations of our students off campus as well as on it.
Students who do not comply with the Student Charter, particularly with relation to coronavirus safety guidelines, will be disciplined.
Buying food and drinks on campus – our new Click and Collect catering service
All food at our campus canteens can now be bought using our new Click and Collect catering service.
The system has been put in place to ensure social distancing around our busy catering areas while making it easy for you to order food and drinks at a time that is convenient for you.
