From the start of December, the country will be returning to modified level 3 precautions. While universities will continue to provide a majority of teaching online, this will allow more activity on campus. 
From 1 December, the University is operating as follows: 

  • The majority of teaching classroom-based teaching is online, with a few exceptions. 
  • Practical teaching, including laboratories and other activities which require hands-on access to equipment, is continuing on-campus where possible.   
  • In a small number of cases, such as some professional courses, teaching will return to campus.  
  • There will be no on-campus exams in January, but quiet space on campus to take online exams will be available.   
  • The Library continues to provide essential services. 
  • Essential services continue to operate, including Campus Services, Security, maintenance, grounds services and student services. The Phoenix restaurant is open, 9.00-15.00, Monday-Friday.  The University will offer services over the holiday period. Read more below.
