The University's response to the COVID-19 global pandemic is being shaped by the latest advice from Australian health and foreign affairs authorities. Enrolments and classes are continuing.
Key information as at 30 July 2021
Our campuses at North Terrace, Waite and Roseworthy are open, with usual building access arrangements for all students and staff.
- Until such time as the current South Australian government health recommendations are relaxed, the following applies:
- Face-to-face teaching and learning will resume on all campuses from Monday 2 August.
- It is expected that all staff will return to work on campus from Monday 2 August, reflecting whatever normal (pre-lockdown) work arrangements staff had in place, unless a different arrangement is agreed with their supervisor.
- Masks are strongly recommended for all students and staff attending campus.
- For staff in the workplace, this means they should wear masks in open plan offices and work spaces, meeting rooms, tea rooms, copier rooms etc.
- For students, this means they should wear masks in teaching spaces, laboratories, open plan informal learning spaces and the Hub.
- If you need to be able to communicate clearly and the mask obstructs this (ie while teaching), the mask can be removed.
- Masks can be removed while eating or drinking.
- More details about restrictions are available here. A list of identified exposure sites, including testing and quarantine requirements, can be found here.
- Quarantine requirements remain in place for individuals who have COVID-19, those who are suspected to have COVID-19, for those awaiting test results, those who have been in identified exposure sites, or for those who have travelled from overseas or from an interstate hotspot. Quarantine directions will come from SAPOL or SA Health. If you are unsure whether you should be in quarantine please call the SA COVID-19 Information Line on 1800 253 787.
- If you are a student affected by the quarantine requirements or travel restrictions, please call the University’s dedicated helpline on +61 8 8313 2882 or email us as soon as possible so we can assist you.

- Check the SA Government website for details on current cross-border travel restrictions, which change frequently.
- Interstate travel on University business will only occur where it is considered critical. It requires the approval of an Executive Dean or Division Head.
- International travel on University business is not permitted for staff or students, except where a government exemption has been issued and University approval granted.
If you are unwell, please seek medical advice and do not attend any of the University campuses unless medically cleared to do so.
