Return to campus

The University is committed to adapting our operations to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff and communities.

In 2021, many of the practical components of our courses will return to face-to-face learning in our state of the art facilities or out in the field, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of the theory and develop your practical skills. Further details on individual subject delivery will be available when the timetable is released or alternatively, you can speak to the Academic Program Director. More information is available at the return to campus website.

The UOW Coronavirus Response website includes latest updates along with student and staff FAQ's.

The University has established a hotline for students to self-report either a diagnosis of COVID 19 or a notification to self-isolate:

Notify the University’s student hotline on +61 2 4221 5700, (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) to advise them of the situation and arrange support via the Student Services Division (SSD).

This support will consist of a welfare check-in and connecting the student to UOW’s health (e.g. counselling) and academic (e.g. HoSt/SSA) support services if a need is identified.
