From 18 July the University will continue to strongly encourage individuals to remain up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations but will no longer require evidence of vaccination in order to access campus.
This is in line with recent changes to the Victorian Government Pandemic Orders and following consultation with the University community.
Importantly, the University’s position on the importance of vaccination has not changed: we strongly encourage you to stay up to date with your vaccinations, including getting your additional booster (or fourth dose) when eligible, and we will continue to provide advice, information and resources to support our community to stay informed on this.
To support a COVIDSafe campus, the University has implemented a comprehensive public health response, with a focus on making masks and rapid antigen tests available free of charge to students and staff, and enhanced infection control, ventilation and cleaning measures across all facilities. More information about these measures is available on our dedicated COVID-19 website. The University also has a range of support services available to students with concerns about attending campus.
If you have any questions about these changes and your ability to attend campus, please contact Stop 1.
