Information on Coronavirus

The health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our priority. Although we are not aware of any cases concerning the Western Sydney University community, the University is taking necessary precautions to protect our community from the threat of this new coronavirus. We are closely monitoring Australian Government and health authority advice, as there is much more to learn about how it is spread, its severity, and other features.
