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 impact to 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
If you are required to attend a campus, you must wear a face covering while you are indoors on campus.
If you are not able to obtain a face mask yourself, you will be provided one by your teachers and lab assistants as necessary.
Students who have a medical condition that allows them to attend class but prevents them from wearing a face mask will be required to show evidence provided to them by a medical practitioner.
Contract tracing app
You must have the VU Safe app on your phone and use the app to log your attendance on campus. This app supports the COVID-19 tracing of people by them nominating their attendance on campus for face-to-face classes or for approved work or study. Using the app to mark your attendance on campus is mandatory.
