Support for students
To help our students stay on track with their studies during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are introducing additional support measures, including changes to assessments, a reduction in the Student Services and Amenities Fee paid by domestic students, and an extension of semester one by one week.
All parking that would normally need to be paid using the CellOPark app is now free of charge on the Perth campus.
