We are taking all necessary steps to reduce the number of students and staff required to attend campus. It is important you know that it is safe to come to campus.
Our Wi-Fi network, computer labs, research and study spaces will remain open to staff and students, with social distancing measures in place. Our enhanced cleaning protocols will also remain in place across our campuses.
For the safety and security of our community, given the significantly reduced number of people on campus, from 5pm 27 March, we will move the campus to after-hours mode. You will need to use your student card to access buildings and study spaces.
Please contact Campus Assist via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Campus Assist on 9351 2000 Option 4 or Campus Security on 9351 3487 if you require additional access or have any issues.
Make sure your contact details are up to date in Sydney Student (enrolled name and Australian mobile phone number). We will use your University email for most updates, but may need to send an SMS.
Now that classes have moved online for teaching, from Monday 23 March, the Student Centre will transition to providing expanded online support. From Thursday 26 March we will be closed for in-person enquiries, but you can still get in touch by phone or by making an online enquiry. Find out how to reach us.
If you’ve submitted a photo for your student card and have been advised to pick it up, we’ll send your card out to your postal address instead. Make sure your address is up to date in Sydney Student.
Due to Government restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the University’s Library spaces will be closed until further notice from Thursday 26 March.
The Library will remain open online to provide live support for research and study from Mon-Thurs 8am-10pm and Fri 8am-8pm.
Our online collection of over 1 million ejournals and eBooks is available 24/7 from any global location.
Other spaces remain open for students who require access to computers or other resources on campus. See below for details.
Several spaces for all cohorts of students remain open at all hours for those who need to access resources across our campuses, whilst adhering to strict social distancing for community safety. You will need to use your student card to access buildings and study spaces.
