COVID-19 - Event cancellations

The health and wellbeing of our Monash community is our top priority.

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Australian Government has banned non-essential indoor gatherings of more than 100, effective 5pm, Wednesday 18 March. This is in addition to bans on mass outdoor gatherings of more than 500 people.

In line with this official health advice, Monash has cancelled all upcoming non-essential indoor events where a crowd of 100 people or more was anticipated on our Australian campuses, effective immediately.

We understand there is community concern in the face of this pandemic. We’re rapidly working through all options, including modifying our education delivery to allow the same academic quality and integrity with the ability for effective social distancing.

This will take time to complete, although we have much prepared already.

We understand how important broader campus experiences are for our students. We are working hard to find alternative ways and dates to bring our campus experiences to you too.
