Please check your emails for further updates.

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 government and health authorities.

This website is being reviewed regularly and will include the latest information for students and staff on any impact on University operations.

Return to campus

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely, so that we can adjust our Return to Campus plans if necessary.

Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our community is a key consideration in our approach to working and studying on campus.

The approach takes into consideration physical distancing requirements in classes, laboratories and around our campuses.

Students have the flexibility to continue their studies online for the remainder of the trimester, should they wish.

Staff should speak with their managers about flexible working arrangements.

Student-facing services (except computer labs and Health and Medical Services) remain available online.

Queensland borders

COVID-19 hotspots are updated regularly. For the latest information: visit the Queensland Government border restrictions webpage.

If you are planning to travel interstate, please continue to monitor government webpages for any changes in the approach to borders and returning to Queensland. Approved domestic travel is subject to any state or territory restrictions.

As a reminder, there is no Staff travel for University purposes to declared hotspots, and no international travel permitted without prior approval from the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), Chief Operating Officer, or Vice Chancellor as appropriate.
