VU is continuing to plan for a gradual and staged return to campus across 2021. This is in line with COVIDSafe Summer and Government advice about the importance of physical distancing measures to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
VU will update students directly through their student email regarding any requirement for essential on-campus learning, practical placements or research activities. If you have any concerns regarding how the current restrictions affect your study, contact your course coordinator for further advice.
Face coverings on campus
Face masks will not be required in classroom settings; however, you will be required to carry a mask with you at all times (unless a lawful exemption applies). It is recommended that you use a face mask when physical distancing is not possible.
All students who come onto campus must log into VU’s WiFi network, allowing VU to undertake contact tracing if required. This is a very simple process and your device will remember you after the first log in.
You can connect to eduroam WiFi with these three easy steps:
- Choose eduroam from the list of networks
- Enter your username in the following format: [email protected]
- Enter your password (same as MYVU) and accept the certificate if requested.
Daily health checks
All students attending campus must complete daily health checks through the VU Safe app on your smartphone. The VU Safe App will also be the communication tool of choice during serious emergencies.
Please enable the push notifications component of the app to ensure we can notify you of any on-campus emergency or any situation occurring off-campus you should be aware of.
