La Trobe University is committed to providing ongoing, flexible and comprehensive support for our students during this challenging time. Our priority remains, as always, the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and wider community.
All our campuses remain open, however we are mindful that many students will be studying more from home. As such, we are ensuring you can access online appointments with our wonderful staff.

Guide to Studying Online
The La Trobe Guide to Studying Online is an LMS subject open for all students and has been designed to provide practical tips and guidance to support you as you make the transition to studying online. Our aim is that the site will be a live and responsive resource which we will update with new information and advice to address needs and challenges identified by students over the coming weeks and months.
