The ANU has announced some minor changes to life and study on campus in light of COVID-19 restrictions easing in the ACT. It has also extended some financial support measures for students.
Remote learning will continue for the remainder of 2021, however, select libraries on campus will be opening soon.
The Hancock, Chifley and Law libraries will be reopening on the 2nd of November with 24/7 access. The Menzies Library will be open 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. These libraries will be staffed from Monday to Friday 9am-5pm with an occupancy limit of one student per four square metres of usable space.
The Art and Music Library will remain closed until 2022, however, its collection is still available to students via click and collect.
Restrictions in effect since the 15th of October concerning students living on campus at residential halls have not changed. Residential students unable to return to their on campus accommodation are still subject to current public health directives and may only travel to the ACT with a permit or when restrictions ease further, depending on their current location.
Students that were unable to return to their on campus accommodation due to border restrictions may apply for a partial credit compensation from the ANU. Applications for this support close on the 3rd of November, more information about eligibility and the financial support provided can be found here.
The ANU has also extended applications for their COVID-19 Extension Scholarship. The scholarship will provide financial support to HDR students whose studies and research have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 lockdowns. Applications close for this scholarship on the 31st of December and more information can be found here.
