Griffith University continues to take the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) seriously.
A specialist team is in place to manage our response to the virus, following the advice of Queensland Health and the Federal Department of Health.
Griffith University is currently implementing a staged and considered return of on-campus activities, in line with government and health guidelines.
This website is being reviewed daily and will include the latest information for students and staff on any impact on University operations.
The Queensland Government has now released Stage 2 of its roadmap to easing restrictions, relaxing guidelines around family, friends and community as well as business and the economy.
In line with relaxed restrictions, Griffith is implementing a staged and considered return of on-campus activities.
Many teaching and learning activities will resume on campus in a staged manner during Trimester 2, including the return of on-campus amenities and support services.
Students will have the flexibility to continue their studies online for the remainder of the trimester, should they wish.
The approach takes into consideration social distancing requirements in classes, laboratories and around our campuses.
The safety, health and well-being of students, staff and the wider community is our key consideration in managing a campus return.
At this time, and as part of Stage 1 of the University’s return to campus, only key staff who have already been classified ‘critical’ or ‘emergency-incident-response’ should be on campus.
Most staff should continue to work remotely and only return to campus when they are officially notified that they can do so. Regular communications will be provided about the University’s return to campus plan. Stages 2 and 3 are still being developed and the start dates for these stages will be broadcast when finalised.
Student-facing services (except computer labs and Health and Medical Services) remain available online. Students can still come onto campus to use these services but are advised to practise social distancing.
Campus facilities, including libraries, gyms, other indoor sporting facilities and the Multi Faith Centre on Nathan campus, remain closed for the time being however child-care services are open in line with government advice.
Your health and wellbeing
Our primary priority is the health and wellbeing of our University community. We understand this has been a difficult time for students and staff affected.
We continue to work with the Government, higher education sector, government agencies and partners to provide a considered, caring and cautious response to the situation.
Various support services are available for students and staff who have been impacted by COVID-19. Visit the students, researchers or staff pages for more detailed information on the variety of support available.
As restrictions are relaxed, everyone should continue to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene measures to protect against infections.
Griffith recommends students and staff wash their hands regularly with soap and water or alcohol-based rubs, practice recommended social distancing guidelines and call 13HEALTH if feeling unwell.
