Events update: COVID-19

Given the increasing concern about the spread of COVID-19 in the community, particularly with winter flu season approaching, we have been informed to cancel or defer any event until advised otherwise.

From Monday 16 March this will apply to all University events or events hosted on our campuses including student, academic and public events and conferences. 

We anticipate it may not be possible to resume these events until spring, likely in late August or early September. We will review this position at the start of Semester 2 and keep you informed.
