Coronavirus

Are you self-isolating? Don't worry, we are here for you. 

Keep an eye on this page or our What’s On in the coming weeks for all the details and how to get involved.

AUSA Advice are here to support you through your self-isolation/quarantine. Your mental health and wellbeing are important to us and we recognise how difficult it can be when you are in isolation and the impacts that this can have on your wellbeing.

If you would like to talk to someone about how you are feeling, or even just to have a bit of human contact, please email us at ausaadvice@abdn.ac.uk and we can organise a call back.

We have some really great information and resources on our website's advice pages that cover a variety of health and wellbeing topics with links to external and internal supports available. There is also a list of virtual activities that you can explore that may help keep your mind occupied through your isolation.

Please also see some useful information on shopping delivery and practical information whilst self- isolating here.

We are here to help so please get in touch so that we can support you.

If you have any concerns regarding travel or otherwise, please contact coronavirus@abdn.ac.uk or visit the coronavirus webpage by clicking this link.

As we continue to follow University guidance this means that we must put in place the postponement of all AUSA events.
