The University of Glasgow is cancelling face-to-face teaching after three cases of coronavirus were confirmed.
The university announced on Saturday that it had three confirmed Covid-19 cases, with the decision taken to end classes and lectures, and assessments not being held in exam halls.
Scotland’s first death of someone with coronavirus was announced on Friday, taking the total deaths in the UK to 11.
Confirmed cases in Scotland rose to 85 from 3,314 tests.
Representative organisation Universities Scotland said on Friday there were no plans to close universities as some students live on campus and many research facilities must run around the clock, while student support and IT infrastructure “require continuous attention”.
But classes have been suspended at a number of campuses.
It added that the universities have suspended international travel for their staff and students unless it is essential.
Edinburgh University, the University of the West of Scotland and Glasgow Caledonian University have also announced face-to-face teaching will cease from Monday, with the latter revealing a student is self-isolating due to a suspected coronavirus infection.
A St Andrews student tested positive for coronavirus after visiting Switzerland, the university announced on Friday.
Richard Lochhead MSP, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, said he spoke to university and college principals and the Scottish Funding Council on Friday about online learning and assessment.
He said: “Scottish universities are autonomous institutions, and decisions on operational delivery are entirely their own, but we support the common sense, measured approach.”
