The University of Wollongong has closed its indoor sports facilities, changed the operation of campus cafes and food courts and altered its library operations.
These moves came as UOW continues to follow all government guidance and direction in its response to COVID-19.
UOW Pulse closed the UniActive indoor gymnasium and sports facilities at the Wollongong and Innovation campuses. Members have been advised that memberships have been suspended until further notice.
The Sports Hub high performance multipurpose training facility used by the St George Illawarra Dragons, Illawarra Academy of Sport, NSW Institute of Sport and other high performance sporting teams is also closed until further notice in line with NSW and federal government direction.
The UniBar also closed at midday today and will remain closed until further notice. All currently scheduled UniBar events have been cancelled.
Those cafes continuing to operate on the Wollongong and Innovation campuses will transition to takeaway only. Indoor dining facilities in cafes, food courts and in common indoor areas will be closed for dining to ensure appropriate social distance can be maintained.
The UOW Library remains open to support staff and students as preparations for online course delivery continue. Social distancing protocols have been implemented to adhere to government guidelines.
