Covid-19 information for our community
Tuesday 23 March 2021
Alert Level 1
With the exception of examinations, all teaching, learning and research activities are on campus, according to the standard timetable.
Examinations will be held online, regardless of alert level
Exceptions will still apply, particularly for courses requiring professional accreditation, and students in these courses will be informed well in advance about the mode of their examinations.
Invigilated tests will be held on campus if the University is at Alert Level 1. If we are at Level 2 or higher, tests (with some exceptions) will be held online.
Contact tracing on campus
Please continue using the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer app at all locations on campus, with the Bluetooth function turned on.
