Coming onto campus

Our campuses are open as normal for our students to meet, study, and learn, as normal. We have agreed with the Scottish Government that our on-campus classes will take place with one-metre physical distancing in place. Students and staff will also be required to wear face coverings while on campus. This is similar to the majority of Scottish universities. This means that our campuses will start to look more like they used to do, but there will still be some limitations to the numbers we can accommodate in classes at any one time.

We expect that all students will experience a mixture of online and in-person learning, but be assured that our campuses are open and available for you to visit.

Student viewing app on mobile phone

Download the Edinburgh Napier App

The Edinburgh Napier app is going to be one of the most important apps on your phone. It's how you register attendance in class, how to tell us you are on campus, and how you book study space and PCs on campus.

It's really important that if you are able to, you download and use the Edinburgh Napier app. You will be able to find it in your mobile phone app store and you can use it to book space on campus and notify us that you are visiting our buildings.

Make sure you have it downloaded before you come to campus. You can do this in your phone's app store.

Booking equipment, study space, or PCs

If you want to use anything on campus that isn't part of a timetabled class, you can book it before you arrive. You can use Resource Booker if you want to use PCs, equipment, or study spaces on campus.

You can access this with your Edinburgh Napier app or by visiting Resource Booker.

Bring your face covering

Face coverings must be worn on campus, accommodation, communal areas and all other teaching areas.

There are special circumstances when students or staff do not need to wear face coverings, so if you see someone not wearing one, remember to be respectful as they may have a very good reason for not wearing it. 


Register your attendance in class with the Edinburgh Napier app

You must use Check In to register your attendance for all of your classes – whether online, on campus, or at our other teaching venues.

You must also register your attendance in class by using the Check In tile on app. This will tell us that you have attended a class.
