COVIDSafe

Deakin is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our staff, students and university community. We are currently working to progressively increase our on-campus activities while ensuring a COVIDSafe environment for everyone.

Continuing forward and supporting our community

Since the impact of COVID-19, we have navigated through a complex and evolving situation. While uncertainty remains, what we do know is that we can blend our approaches to learning, working and research with on-campus and off-campus arrangements regardless of our physical locations.

Student information

Classes and seminars for all upcoming study periods will continue to be held online. We are currently planning for the gradual return of on-campus practical classes and other activities that require campus facilities. This will be subject to government and University guidelines.

Campus access

Access to campus by staff, students and visitors is currently restricted to help maintain health and safety protocols. Staff and visitor access is reviewed case-by-case. Students are to be guided by the requirements as outlined by their faculty.

Be aware of your responsibilities

If you're on-campus or thinking about attending campus, we all have an individual responsibility to contribute to keeping Deakin's campuses safe. These include:

  • continue working from home if you can
  • wear your face covering
  • maintain a 1.5m physical distance from others
  • check occupancy levels prior to entering a space to enable 4sqm per occupant
  • self-check and stay home if you're unwell
  • wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser when available
  • clean or wipe down equipment you use.
