Supporting the University Community

The health and safety of our student’s staff and campus community remains our first priority as we continue to work towards reopening our campus. This means taking a cautious approach by implementing strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the campus community and visitors at all times.

As a reminder, anyone entering campus buildings must:

– scan the MySejahtera app at the Screening Station located at the entrance of the building. This is for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes.
– scan your body temperature at the Entrance Screening Station. You will only be permitted to enter the building if your body temperate is not exceeding 37.5 degrees Celsius.
– Present your MySejahtera profile risk page and vaccination status digital certificate or vaccination card, or medical letter, to the Security Guard on duty.
– You could be denied entry into the building should you fail to comply to these SOPs.

We ask for your understanding for any inconvenience caused as we continue to ensure the Swinburne community remains safe.
