Upcoming Events and Activities

Many members of University staff continue to work on the evolving COVID-19 situation, following the news on Saturday, 14 March, that the New Zealand Government now requires all international travelers - including citizens and residents - to self-isolate upon arrival for 14 days, with the exception of the Pacific Islands.

We continue to take our lead on events from the Ministry of Health’s advice on public events and mass gatherings. As this situation evolves, we will continue to make decisions that are in the best interests of the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and the immediate community.
