The University has established five online groups - in Slack - to help students living in University accommodation to keep in touch and support each other.
The four groups are private to residents of each accommodation, these are:
• Clanny House
• Panns Bank
• Scotia Quay
• The Forge
In addition, there is a general UoS Covid group, where the University will share information about further support that is available.
As well as connecting students, the online network is a way to identify volunteers who can be called upon by others in times of need, for example to pick up shopping, prescriptions or other essential items.
If you are interested in finding out more and would like to support your fellow students, please follow the link HERE to download the Slack App to your phone or desktop. You will then be added to the appropriate accommodation channel. You can find out more about the Slack network HERE
Please be assured that University staff will continue to support you in your accommodation during this time and the Gateway is open.
