Attending Campus

Mandatory Vaccination requirements for Students and Employees

Box Hill Institute prioritises the health and safety of students and employees on our campuses.

For our return to campus, vaccination is our best protection to keep our people safe and protect the community against the spread of COVID-19.

Students and employees must be fully vaccinated to attend on campus.

The vaccination requirements do not include students who are attending on campus to complete secondary school subjects or those that have a medical exemption.

If you have a medical exemption for COVID-19 vaccinations please advise your Course Manager prior to attending campus. Your Course manager will liaise with our COVID Response and Transition Manager and we will work with you to establish an individual plan to ensure your time of campus is COVID safe. Box Hill Institute staff can find further information about vaccination requirements for employees on OurSpace.

How do I show that I am vaccinated?

Your teachers will be required to ask you to prove your vaccination status using the Service Victoria app or by showing one of the accepted vaccination status records. These include:

  1. Immunisation history statement available from Medicare 
  2. MyGov COVID-19 digital certificate 

You can link your vaccination status to the Service Victoria app by following the instructions.

Students who cannot provide the required vaccination evidence will not be allowed on any Box Hill Institute campus.

There may also be security guards and Covid marshals on campus, who may ask to see your Covid vaccination status on campus.

What do I do if I’m not vaccinated and don’t have a vaccination status?

If you are not yet vaccinated and don’t have a vaccination status, but try to come on campus, your teacher will inform you of the current vaccination requirements and will ask you to leave campus. You may also be directed to Student Life offices location on campus for more information about the mandatory vaccination requirements and support information.

If you have an issue or concern with the mandatory vaccination requirement, please email: returntocampus@boxhill.edu.au
