Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The COVID-19 global pandemic has created many challenges for our student and staff community in terms of study, work and social connection. During the ever-changing coronavirus situation, the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff has been our highest priority.

Western Sydney University is implementing its carefully managed staged return to campus plan, recommencing teaching, learning and research activities on our campuses. We are excited to welcome students and staff back to our campuses in 2021, in line with the latest government advice. For more information, visit the Return to campus page.

We are continually reviewing all University operations; acting on the latest Australian Government, health authority and regulatory advice; taking all of the necessary precautions; and doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. For the latest on these measures, visit the News and Updates page.
