We are aware of the current disruption to rail services as a result of an exclusion zone being in place around Ayr Railway Station. This has occurred as a result of a former hotel building next to the station being deemed unsafe.
ScotRail is providing details on its website and social media channels as to the services which are disrupted and the alterations which will apply to the routes.
ScotRail is also advising that replacement bus services will operate on routes where appropriate, and to please check before starting your journey to ensure you are aware which services are operating. Where necessary, ScotRail is recommending alternative bus routes.
We advise those who plan to travel to the campus via train to keep an eye out for updates from ScotRail and plan ahead, allowing a bit longer for your journey.
We also understand that the Ayr/Glasgow Central Service which stops at Paisley Gilmour Street is affected, which may therefore impact those travelling to our Paisley campus.
We are in touch with South Ayrshire Council, and will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide any updates as and when we know more.
If a campus is closed when you have an assignment due for submission, follow these guidelines.
This page will post updates on any disruption to exams due to bad weather or other events. Again, your safety is the most important thing to consider when deciding whether to travel to an exam in severe weather.
If you decide it’s not safe for you to attend an exam, you should submit an Extenuating Circumstances Statement. Visit our Academic Appeals and Extenuating Circumstances page for further details.
