Due to the vaccination mandate and public health concerns the University is restricting access to some buildings on our campuses. Only staff, contractors and students who have had their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (or are fully vaccinated), or have a Government-approved exemption will be able to access these buildings. Signage will be displayed on relevant campus buildings, and a list of affected buildings can be found on the website:

COVID-19 information for staff

The restriction does not apply to students entering any building as a patient. All students who have paid the student services fee can access Student Health Services, however, if you are unvaccinated against COVID-19 or have COVID-19 symptoms your appointment may be via telehealth. In-person appointments would only be provided if clinically required.
