Stay away when unwell

To protect our community please do not come onto our campuses if you are unwell. This includes fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, or loss or change in sense of taste or smell – however mild.

Covid-19 vaccination

There are some University activities where Government vaccine mandates still apply until Monday 26 September 2022:


Staff and students who also work with the District Health Boards or in our clinics will still need to be vaccinated (and boosted). This applies mainly to the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, Campus Life and the Liggins Institute, although it will include some people in the Faculty of Science, Auckland Bioengineering Institute and UniServices.

Border workers

Some staff working in our laboratories on Covid-19 research are classed as border workers.

Aged care

This applies mainly to staff and students at the Faculty of Education and Social Work.
