Commenting on the new testing centre, the University Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Gerry McCormac said: “We welcome this important facility on campus which provides greater access to testing and further enhances measures to make the university, and wider community, as safe as possible.”

“I am grateful for the work of colleagues at the university in partnership with the local authorities, the Scottish Ambulance Service and the NHS, to get this up and running.”

“The health, safety, and wellbeing of our students, staff, and the wider community is of utmost importance. We will continue to remind our community of the importance of alerting the university and NHS Test and Protect if they display symptoms, and of taking appropriate action, including booking a test.”

If you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms should book a test via the NHS website.
