Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation, the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our priority. The University is continuing to operate, in an online capacity. Our teaching and learning activities and study and support services have now transitioned online and we have made substantial changes to the spaces on our campuses that are accessible. We are continually reviewing all University operations; acting on the latest Australian Government and health authority advice; taking all of the necessary precautions; and doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. For up-to-date information on these measures, visit News and Updates.
