Key developments

You only need to register your campus attendance once per day.

  • Graduations will recommence on-campus from February 2021.
  • Teaching and other workplace spaces will be setup to cater for 1.5m physical distancing requirements. It is critical that you do not move furniture in teaching spaces or work place spaces and follow any other guidelines such as regular hand washing/hygiene. 

  • Staff, including security staff, will continue to monitor spaces to ensure social distancing. If you are not adhering to social distancing requirements, you will be asked to leave the campus.

Whilst lectures will remain online, all of our campuses will return to regular operations with libraries, study spaces, computer labs, student hubs, cafes and other student amenities open. 

It is important to recognise that COVID-19 remains an active concern and consequently the University will continue to take the appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of staff, students and visitors to our campuses.
