Broad COVID-related guidance for students wishing to get involved in volunteering, clubs and societies in the 2020/21 academic year.


Hello! If you are a new or returning student, it is great to see you.

This year may look and feel slightly different, but Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council (GUSRC) is here to offer you as much support as we can muster, to help make your experience at university and in this city as safe, memorable and positive as possible.


GUSRC has produced broad guidance for University of Glasgow students wishing to undertake extracurricular activities, namely volunteering, clubs and societies in academic session 2020/2021 whilst the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

The undernoted advice is general, non-specific and is not exhaustive. However, our hope is this brief document will help students – individually and in groups and committees – consider risk, health and welfare, and the precautions needed to safely participate in or organise events and activities.

Information has been collated from several sources, including the Scottish Government, University of Glasgow, Volunteer Scotland, Transport Scotland and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).

Please note, local and national advice is fluid and can change daily, frequently.
