Coronavirus Covid-19

Advice for students and staff.

Great things happen at New College Lanarkshire. You will learn new skills, gain new understanding and also we hope, find friends who will be with you for a lifetime. 

Great things happen at New College Lanarkshire because of the determination, friendliness and the welcome of our staff. We really believe in our students, we believe in our college and we believe in our region. 

This is the start of an academic year like no other. The covid crisis has brought some very significant challenges and over the past 6 months we have spent a lot of time carefully preparing for the safe return of all of our students and staff to our campus buildings. 

Protecting & 
supporting you.

Protecting and supporting the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and local community is New College Lanarkshire's priority.

Information and advice on the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can be found below.

Our guidance is frequently reviewed to provide you with the most up-to-date information in line with current government advice.

Please check the Scottish Government coronavirus page for the latest information.

We have put in place some new safety measures to make you all feel safe and comfortable:

  • Only attend campus if you have been specifically asked.
  • Face coverings must be worn in all public and social areas, unless an exemption applied.
  • Follow designated entrances and exits on campus.
  • Hand sanitiser stations on all floors, entrances and exits.
  • Campus contact tracing system.

Keeping you safe on campus.

To ensure everyone can keep a safe distance from others while on campus, NCL staff and students will now need to check into a campus before attending, using NCL's contact tracing systems.

This process is quick, easy and completely touchless if you use the 'Envoy' app, which can be downloaded to your smart phone either from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store

Full guidance on how to download and use the application can be viewed here or take five to read our short guidance documents below:
