Who needs to be vaccinated to enter OTARC facilities and who is exempt?
Protecting the health and safety of our students, staff and wider communities has been La Trobe’s first priority throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
From 1 December 2021, all staff, students, honorary appointees, contractors, tenants, volunteers and visitors attending our campuses will be required to be fully vaccinated (limited exemptions apply). Zones have been identified across all campuses in which only fully vaccinated people are now able to attend. Please refer to the new Health and Safety Procedure – COVID-19 Vaccination which includes zone maps.
Children aged under 12, and those with a valid medical exemption are permitted on campus. Exemptions do not apply to those who choose not to be vaccinated on personal or religious grounds.
Bundoora campus has many food and beverage retailers where you can pick up a coffee or something to eat, including an IGA Xpress.
Most retailers are located in the Agora level 1(8H on the map linked below). Using the Level 2 link, you can walk straight through the following buildings (all signage is hung from the ceiling, so look up!):
- George Singer Building,
- Biological Sciences 2,
- Biological Sciences 1,
- R.L. Reid Building,
- La Trobe Institute for Molecular Sci 1,
- La Trobe Institute for Molecular Sci 2, and
- The Learning Commons.
Once you come to daylight, turn left towards the Agora. On your right will be a lift. If you would prefer stairs, turn right at the Student Union building, they will be right in front of you.
A full list of retailers and their opening hours can be accessed using the link below.
