The health and safety of all our staff and students is paramount at the University of South Australia.

UniSA is working diligently with local and national health authorities to support the international effort to reduce the impact and spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to support our community in what is a challenging time.

If you are feeling unwell, do not come to campus. Stay at home and seek medical advice.  More information for students about what to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms can be found here.  More information for staff can be found here.
