As some of our students and staff return to campus, RMIT's top priority is the health and safety of our community and providing a safe learning and research environment on all RMIT campuses.
Students and staff on campus will notice a number of new protocols that the University has implemented to help keep us safe.
The most important thing any of us can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell or experiencing any symptoms, please don't come to campus. Instead, you should seek medical advice and consider getting tested.
Before attending campus, all students and staff must complete the online COVIDSafe module, which explains the important safety measures that everyone on campus must adhere to. The module tells you everything you need to know and do to stay safe on campus.
When you are at any RMIT location, you'll see new safety measures. These include daily temperature check stations and health declarations, mandatory masks, physical distancing, increased ventilation in our buildings and room capacity limits. You might also see additional cleaning, as well as COVID monitors and campus security personnel who are on site to ensure everyone is doing their part to keep us all safe.
Coming back to campus has been no stress at all, it's been fine. If you are feeling nervous, you don't need to be. Student numbers are limited, so you're not interacting greatly with other students. There's measures being put in place by the University that provide the safety of a necessary return.
Initially, it was hard, and it was a bit confronting. But following on from that, it just kept getting easier and easier and easier. So now, it's like everything that
we're doing is just second nature.
The best thing about being back on campus has been seeing our students pick up their learning and continuing. It's been really exciting to see the smiles on their faces whilst they've been back here and continuing with their practical assessments to support what they do in the industry.

A lot of thought has gone into being able to bring students back onto campus. So, we do reassure them that everything is set up for them and for their protection. So, so long as they follow the guidelines, there is really no issue being back on campus.
The best thing about being back on campus is being able to finish me studies, yeah.
Safety requirements on campus will change in line with the latest government directives and RMIT's own assessments.
