In accordance with NSW Health’s latest restrictions announced today (Wednesday 23 June), please read the important information below for students at UOW’s Wollongong, Sydney CBD, Southern Sydney, South Western Sydney or Innovation campuses, applicable from 4 pm Wednesday 23 June for 1 week (unless advised otherwise):
- Face masks required in all indoor campus settings including teaching rooms, student service counters, UOW Wollongong Library, food and retail outlets, places of public worship and entertainment spaces like the UniBar, UniActive Gyms, as well as when waiting for or using public transport or at organised outdoor events. Students are encouraged to bring their own reusable masks when visiting campus.

Any students with impacted classes will be communicated to by a university staff member.
- At UOW’s Sydney CBD campus, all teaching will revert online for the remainder of this week and next week from tomorrow, Thursday 24 June. Further information on this will be communicated with impacted students directly.
