University update for staff, students and community

Published 2 March 2022

Southern Cross University is offering support to staff and students as the devastating flood events in Northern NSW continue to unfold.

With recovery efforts underway in Lismore and current evacuations in surrounding regions, Southern Cross University has offered a package of services to staff, especially those directly-impacted. The University is also talking with local schools and business about how they can partner to fast-track an operational return.

Meanwhile the recovery centre at Lismore campus is housing more than 800 displaced community members.

Southern Cross University students who have scheduled placements during Term 1/Session 1 can keep up to date with any current announcements through their Blackboard learning portal. Any students with placements planned in the flood-affected Northern NSW region are being contacted directly to organise arrangements.
