Latest State Government advice

  • Following yesterday’s Victorian Government announcement declaring a State of Disaster and the introduction of Stage 4 restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne from 6pm Sunday 2 August, Monash University is working through the impact of these new restrictions on its operations and learning and teaching arrangements.
  • Further information is expected to be released today and will inform additional decisions.
  • Monash University continues to align itself with all Victorian Government restrictions: the introduction of a curfew, wearing a face mask when leaving home, and strict physical distancing measures. If unwell and displaying symptoms, you must stay home and get tested for COVID-19, and do not come to campus.
  • Monash will align with the Victorian Government’s return to remote learning from Wednesday 5 August.
  • For today, Monday 3 August and tomorrow, Tuesday 4 August, there will be limited students and staff on our campuses for the already scheduled practicals, laboratory workshops and exams (if they were unable to do these remotely). The libraries will also remain open.
  • We will contact you later today regarding any updates on scheduled on-campus educational sessions.
  • Our ongoing priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of the Monash community. We thank you for your patience while we work through the necessary changes. We will keep you up-to-date as we work through the changes.
