Events on campus
Frequently asked questions
- Can I still organise an event at UWA?
Yes you can; however, all events must comply with current WA State Government advice and University requirements.
The situation is constantly evolving. However, the University is monitoring this and changes will be implemented to align with government advice. Depending on the UWA venue and the advice settings this may include limits on the number of people gathering, physical distancing, proof of vaccination status, the wearing of masks, hygiene/cleaning and adhering to contact tracing requirements.
- How many people are permitted at my event?
The WA State Government has a range of measures and requirements in place to keep events safe and all UWA events must comply with these requirements. Different requirements are required depending on the number of attendees at your event. Please visit the WA State Government Events webpage for more information.
- What are the current contact tracing requirements for events?
All event attendees must check in on arrival, either by scanning the venue QR code, or on a manual contact register. The WA Government’s SafeWA app is an easy way for people to check-in. A manual contact register must also be available.
More information for staff is available from the Staff Intranet.
- What are the current safe distancing requirements?
From 23 June 2021, there are no longer any capacity restrictions for venues and events, subject to WA State Government advice.
Patrons should still practice physical distancing where possible and should be reminded to practice good personal hygiene (wash hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitiser; cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use your elbow).
Hand sanitiser or easily accessible handwashing facilities must be available, as well as COVID-19 hygiene signage.
- Do I need to wear a mask to visit the University?
The University complies with WA State Government advice on mask wearing. You should check the latest advice on State Government mask requirements before attending a UWA event.
- What about student-run events?
