Return to the workplace

University buildings are gradually re-opening and many are now ready to welcome colleagues back to the workplace. This programme of re-opening will continue over the coming weeks, until we are ready for the arrival of students and the resumption of teaching in Semester 1. We shall continue to proceed in step with Scottish Government guidelines, adjusting our own response as national guidance evolves, and we note that the current restrictions may have altered significantly by September.

At all times, in all circumstances, and in the interests of everyone in the University and wider St Andrews community, the chief principle guiding this work will be safety.

The following FAQs are designed to assist staff in preparing to return to the workplace and they will be updated regularly.
