​Notification of Death Procedure


The death of a student or member of staff is always difficult for the family, students and university staff who knew the deceased. The University will always endeavour to handle any death in a sensitive and appropriate manner.


The Notification of Death Procedure​​ clarifies the roles and responsibilities of key personnel within the University and ensures that any actions are taken forward appropriately.


All staff and student deaths should always be reported to Governance & Compliance in the first instance. For further guidance and/or advice please contact Maureen Masson, Governance Officer (Risk & Governance) at m.masson@napier.ac.uk or 0131 455 6408.
