Coronavirus (COVID-19): student advice and support

The University of Melbourne continues to strongly support the student community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We prioritise our students' health and wellbeing.

The Victorian Government announced that a state of disaster is declared from 6pm Sunday 2 August, with the introduction of Stage 4 restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne. We continue to work through the implications of these restrictions with the Victorian Government.

Most subjects are now expected to continue through online delivery only, at least for the duration of Stage 4 restrictions. Certain clinical and essential research activities are likely to be exceptions which must continue in-person. If an exception has been confirmed for your subject or clinical placement, your subject coordinator will write to you directly with further information.

For all other students, you must not come to campus until you receive further advice from the University to do so. We are working closely on alternative arrangements for affected classes, which may include online teaching or delaying essential in-person teaching components to later in Semester once current restrictions allow. Existing study spaces in the Baillieu Library on the Parkville campus will also be closed until further notice.

Specific details are now available for each of the subjects on our list of Semester 2 subjects with in-person activities. You should also refer to the LMS for subject-specific details.

The health and safety of our University community continues to be our priority and we will work with the Victorian Government to ensure this.

Check your student email for regular updates from the University. For information about accessing student email overseas, see the student email FAQ.

Previous COVID-19 student communication

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, it can be hard to keep track of the latest information. We have put together a log of official University emails sent to students announcing changes and updates related to COVID-19 (login required).
