Coming to campus - COVID protocols for students

All students must complete COVID protocols before they come to campus and follow safety measures while on campus.

Before attending campus, you must complete the COVID protocols outlined below.

If you are feeling unwell, DO NOT attend campus – instead, stay home, seek medical advice and consider getting a COVID-19 test. COVID-19 symptoms are listed on the Victorian Government website.

Before you come to campus

Have an RMIT student card

You must carry your student card at all times on campus. Campus Security may request to see your student card at any time. If you don't have one, find out how to get a new or replacement student card via the link below.

Complete the RMIT COVIDSafe 2022 Training Module

The COVIDSafe Training Module is available through Canvas. You must complete the module ONCE only in 2022.  If you've forgotten your login password, you can reset it. If you have already completed the training module this year, there is no action required. 

 

While on campus

  • Carry your RMIT student card at all times. You will need it to access areas that are swipe card access only. Please do not tailgate or open doors for others. If your card doesn’t scan at the access point, make sure you’ve completed your COVIDSafe Training Module (see above).
  • Wear a mask in required settings. We strongly encourage you to wear a mask indoors and where you can't physically distance. This includes lecture theatres, classrooms and learning spaces. RMIT requires that masks be worn in some settings including nursing and allied health classes, consultations at the Bundoora Health Clinic and the City Myotherapy Clinic, and certain specialist teaching spaces. Where a mask is required to be worn, you must wear it correctly and in accordance with current Victorian Government advice. If you have a valid medical exemption from wearing a mask, please contact RMIT Student Connect so you can be issued with a card to indicate your exemption.
  • Carry a mask at all times. If you don't have a mask or forget to bring one, you can get a free mask from Student Connect locations on campus. 
    • City campus – Building 8, Level 4 
    • Brunswick campus – Building 514, Level 1 
    • Bundoora campus – Building 202, Level 2
  • Obey all safety signage.
  • Practise good hygiene and wash your hands frequently.
  • Follow the directives of COVIDSafe Champions and RMIT staff.

 

Vaccination

Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and others from severe illness due to COVID-19. We strongly encourage our students and staff to vaccinate against COVID-19 and have made it easy to do so

 

Special access

If you need access to a particular learning or research space, your access will be organised by your program. If you need after-hours access to an area, visit the Campus access page for information and application details.
