This information is provided for visitors to Curtin’s campuses in Western Australia and will be regularly updated.
Curtin’s Western Australian campuses are open, however we have moved to an online teaching model for our students and many staff are now working from home. Changes have had to be made to the way we operate as a result of COVID-19 related restrictions but we continue our core functions of teaching, research and engagement.
Curtin Dubai has temporarily closed in line with directives from the United Arab Emirates Government, and Curtin Singapore has had to modify some of its operations in response to government requirements. Curtin Malaysia is delivering all of its classes online, and Curtin Mauritius temporarily closed in response to a government directive after the first cases of COVID-19 were identified in that country. Students are being taught online.
Curtin is adhering to all travel and health directives from the government, as well as implementing the following measures on its WA campuses and venues to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19:
All University-related travel has been postponed indefinitely
All public events at Curtin venues have been cancelled
Teaching has moved online and most staff are working from home
Staff and students have been advised of appropriate personal hygiene and physical distancing practices
Buildings such as the TL Robertson Library, the John Curtin Gallery and Curtin FM are closed to the public. Food outlets have either closed or are offering takeaway only.
Curtin has cancelled all public events on its campuses. No further events are scheduled at this time.
Curtin’s TL Robertson Library on the Perth campus has been closed in line with government directives.
The Kalgoorlie campus library will remain open, as it includes essential student services.
Under government direction, Curtin Stadium is closed until further notice. The Stadium can be contacted via Facebook or by emailing email@example.com.
For members of the Curtin community who would like to keep active, a number of free resources are available on the Stadium Facebook page and CurtinMoves app.
Curtin FM 100.1 has taken steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of its volunteers, broadcasters and staff.
The Station is now closed to the public and operating with minimal staff and volunteer numbers. The Station can be contacted on 9266 2121 or emailed via firstname.lastname@example.org but there may be a delay in answering queries. Listeners can continue to call the studios on 9484 1927.
Curtin FM will continue to broadcast and to entertain, inform and educate the wider Perth community, which in the current climate is more important than ever.
The John Curtin Gallery has closed to the public and all planned public program events for the rest of the exhibition period have been cancelled. This is as part of a nationally consistent approach by cultural and art institutions.
The Gallery looks forward to returning to normal operations as soon as possible, but in the meantime you can stay engaged via the website, Instagram and Facebook.
The government has confirmed that allied health services such as physiotherapy are able to continue operating, and Curtin’s physiotherapy clinic remains open in building 404 (Health and Wellness Centre reception – level 2). Strict hygiene procedures are being followed in all areas of the building.
