On campus


The University has a regular comprehensive cleaning regime in place. For details on these cleaning regimes refer to Cleaning: University of Canberra.

Face mask requirements in indoor on-campus settings

  • The use of face masks in all teaching and research environments will be mandatory for the remainder of  2022.
  • The use of face masks in all other indoor settings, including the UC Library, is encouraged but optional. We further encourage staff, students and visitors to make use of face masks in environments where social distancing cannot be maintained or where you are in a closed environment with others for longer than two (2) hours.
  • The wearing of masks in other environments where there is no mandate, is a personal choice and is to be supported and not questioned. The reasons people wear masks may not be overtly obvious to you.

The use of face masks remains mandated in the following locations:

  • Student residential accommodation.
  • UC Medical and Counselling Centre.
  • All teaching and research spaces including lectures, workshops, laboratories and tutorials.
  • Early childhood settings.
  • Students and staff attending the stated high-risk settings, such as placements in aged and health care settings, as determined by ACT Health.
  • University of Canberra Hospital (UCH).
  • Lab and clinical settings across faculties where 1.5 metres distancing cannot be maintained or there is contact with members of the community who are high risk.

Be COVID-safe

Our UC community is reminded that it is absolutely imperative that everyone:

  • follows ACT Government health advice;
  • does not come on to campus if unwell; and
  • provides honest responses to University procedures relating to declaration of travel and health symptoms.

Failure to do so not only puts our entire UC community at risk, it may also result in penalties and fines under the ACT Health’s Public Health Directions and/or sanctions under the University’s Student Conduct Rules.

Thank you for doing your part in keeping our campus and community safe by following these basic guidelines:

  • Follow ACT Government health advice.
  • Do not come on to campus if you are unwell.
  • Wear your face mask as outlined above.
  • Maintain a safe physical distance of 1.5m from others.
  • Practise good hand hygiene.
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow or tissue.
  • Wipe down any shared workspaces and equipment when you enter and leave a venue.
  • If you are presenting with viral symptoms, get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result. If you are uncertain about your symptoms, please consult your doctor.

Call the ACT Health COVID-19 hotline on (02) 6207 7244 between 8am and 8pm daily, if you are seeking advice relating to testing, quarantine and vaccinations, or for exposure advice.
