La Trobe's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus)

As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve rapidly, we’re taking the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our students, staff and wider La Trobe community. This includes a shift to online teaching and learning and transitioning to working from home.

While COVID-19 poses unprecedented challenges to the way the University operates, the health, safety and wellbeing of our community remains our top priority.

We’re continuing to closely monitor the situation and are taking advice from relevant authorities, including the Australian Government’s Department of Health, DFAT Smart Traveller and World Health Organisation.
