Resident FAQs for COVID-19

What is the check-in process when returning?

To initiate your return to residences, please give three days’ notice and apply through StarRez.

When arriving back to campus, please present at reception and the customer services team will assist you with check-in. Some additional health questions will be part of the standard check-in process.

Please do not return to campus if you are feeling unwell.

What do I need to know about group gatherings in the residences?

The University expects all residents to abide by the public health directions about social gatherings and COVID-safe practices. On-campus residents are subject to the Government's private gatherings in the home rule. If you are not sure who would be regarded as your ‘household bubble’ for the purposes of complying with the public health directions, please check with staff.

Please be particularly mindful of physical distancing when using the common facilities on your floor and in your apartments.  If you become unwell, call a staff member for advice.

Some common areas in the Bundoora precinct have had to be restricted. We will keep you informed of changes to the public health directions and really appreciate everyone playing their part in protecting the health of our community.

Failure to comply with public health directions will constitute a breach of the Rules of Residence and appropriate action will be taken.

Do I have to wear a face masks?

It is expected that students access and wear a face mask in locations and circumstances specified by the Victorian Government Health Directions. Current Government health directions requires wearing a face mask for all indoor settings (except when in your household) and outdoors, unless you have a medical exemption.
