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.
Students have the flexibility to continue their studies online for the remainder of the trimester, should they wish.
The approach takes into consideration physical 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.
Staff should check with their manager about campus working arrangements.
Student-facing services (except computer labs and Health and Medical Services) remain available online. Students can come onto campus to use these services but are advised to practise physical distancing.
Return to campus information
An increase in COVID-19 cases in New South Wales has prompted the Queensland Government to bring in state border restrictions for people returning from declared hotspots.
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.
As a reminder, there is no Staff travel for University purposes to declared hotspots.
