Creating a COVIDSafe Deakin Together

Deakin is committed to maintaining the ongoing safety of our University community. A dedicated Campus Reactivation Group is working to manage and deliver approved on-campus activities, while maintaining the health and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors.

It is important all visitors are aware of their individual commitment to ensuring Deakin remains a COVIDSafe environment for everyone.

COVIDSafe Training Module

This training module has been developed to provide an overview of how you can contribute to a COVIDSafe campus and what to do in the event of a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19.

Visitors are encouraged to complete the training below.

Students can access their own training from the My Learning dashboard in DeakinSync and staff can access the training through the DeakinPeople learning dashboard.

Checking in

When you visit Deakin, you’ll need to check in online each time you enter a room, café, library, or other facility that is displaying a unique COVIDSafe check in QR code sign at the entrance, if you’re planning to be in the space for 15 minutes or longer.

This attendance recording process is a Victorian Government requirement as part of our COVIDSafe management plan and will help us to quickly contact you if you might be at risk of COVID-19 infection.

Where a unique COVIDSafe check in QR code is displayed, simply scan with your mobile phone camera and complete the details, or you can manually check via
