Isolation countdown guide Festive page

Things to do in isolation

Early welcome

The isolation countdown guide for students arriving in Dundee for Semester 2 will be available from 9 January 2021 - put the date in your diary!

In the guide you'll find a range of information, for example, you will need to know about getting started at University, some fun things to do to help avoid boredom, and suggestions for getting to know other people. We've also included some facts about the University, Dundee and Scotland that you might not know. 

If you're already in isolation, or have to stay in Dundee over the festive period, scroll down for some things to do.

Staying in Dundee?

If you have to stay in Dundee over the festive period have a look at Christmas and New Year at the University of Dundee and the University's festive events. There are a few that you won't be able to attend in person if you're in isolation but there's lots for you to be involved in virtually!
