The University is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and our response is being shaped by the latest advice from Australian health and foreign affairs authorities.
With many staff and students back on campus, the University continues to take advice from Government and health authorities to ensure a safe campus environment. While most buildings and retailers are open, there may be some changes to opening hours or access conditions.
What do I need to know about COVID-19?
Are there any quarantine requirements for students or staff returning from countries affected by travel restrictions?
Australia's borders are now closed, with only Australian citizens, permanent residents and their dependants still able to enter the country. Read more about the Australian Government’s travel restrictions. All travellers arriving in Australia must now undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities (for example, a hotel), in their port of arrival.
Please also see details of some further travel restrictions on entering South Australia.
Quarantine requirements remain in place for individuals who have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
If you are affected by quarantine requirements and need assistance, please call the University’s dedicated helpline on +61 8 8313 2882 or email us so we can assist you. We will work with you to help you engage with your studies from a distance.
If you are a student in shared accommodation, please notify your accommodation provider immediately. They will assist you with the isolation requirements. See SA Health advice on living with others.
If you begin to have symptoms, please follow SA Health advice.

What happens if I am being tested for COVID-19?
You will need to follow the advice of your doctor and, where required, SA Health. If you are advised by your doctor or SA Health not to attend the University for a period of time, please contact your supervisor. If you are an undergraduate student, please contact your Faculty to inform them of your situation.
Please refrain from attempting to do your own contact tracing or provision of information to others at work beyond your supervisor; this is best left to SA Health in the unlikely event that a test comes back positive.
I am experiencing stress or anxiety regarding the situation or my health and I would like to talk to someone.
