CovidSafe Arrangements

Access to Campus and CovidSafe Arrangements

If you need to come to campus, it is essential that you adhere to the DHHS and RMIT protocols.  

Wear a mask and do not eat inside.  

Students attending campus from 6pm on Friday 29 October must be fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption. This is a Victorian Government requirement.   

Students who have previously been approved to come to campus (e.g. previously held an authorised worker permit to attend campus, or had been approved to attend campus), must have already had their first dose and be fully vaccinated by 26 November to continue to access campus or have a medical exemption.  

To provide your vaccination status complete the vaccination status form at least 24 hours prior to attending campus.  Further information about the vaccination requirement is available here. 

Make sure you have your Student ID and uploaded vaccination certificate or medical exemption before travelling to campus or undertaking an approved off-campus activity.

For staff access, full details of how to seek approval and provide your vaccination status is available on Worklife.

Your questions answered:   

You can come onto campus for any of the following reasons:

    • Assessment/examination presentations
    • Completion of practical work
    • Access to equipment, workshops and studios
    • Collections of materials from studios.

If you can study off-campus you should continue to do so.

Ensure you complete the vaccination status form at least 24 hours prior to attending campus.

If you are on campus with any issues please go to security in Building 5 and Building 8. If you can produce evidence on the spot (eg on your phone) security can also update and reactivate your cards (and therefore you should still be able to come into our buildings). 

Learner Directed Hours access is Monday to Friday 7am - 7pm
