Frequently Asked Questions

Can I attend campus?

Partially vaccinated students can now attend campus up until the 26th November 2021. From the 26th November 2021 all students and employees on campus will be required to be fully vaccinated. 

Key dates: 

  • 4th November – 25th November 2021: students and employees must be at least partially vaccinated to attend on campus 
  • From 26th November 2021 onwards: 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.

Teachers on campus will be required to check your vaccination status (and QR codes) at the beginning of each class. Students who are not vaccinated will not be able to attend on campus. Box Hill Institute is working to confirm next steps for these students and will communicate as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please visit the COVID-19 Update webpage or email

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 also provide your proof of vaccination card received at the appointment.

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 site at any Box Hill Institute campuses.

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

Moving forward, Box Hill Institute will be establishing a process for recording student vaccinations via Student Web. Instructions about this will be provided shortly.

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

If you have not had your first vaccination yet 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.

Do I still need to scan the QR codes in buildings at Box Hill Institute campuses?

Yes, as part of our COVID safe protocol, all people including employees, students and visitors coming on campus must use the QR codes for every building they enter, every day. As the return to campus increases, teachers will be required to check QR code completion for students in the classroom.
