No classes will be delivered on-campus and only essential services will be available. The University will do what it can to limit this impact by offering make-up classes or moving to online where possible. Similarly, we will support students currently on work placement in affected areas.
No staff should be present on the Dubbo campus except those required for essential services. Only students residing in our on-campus accommodation should be present on campus.
