Snow update – morning exams are on

As published on SUSSED this morning at 6:55, the University will remain OPEN and all morning exams are on. 

The University will be meeting again this morning and shall announce at noon if afternoon exams are going to be on (again, assume they are going ahead at the moment). 

For students travelling into campus, be safe and sensible. If you are unable to attend your exams because of the snow conditions  you will not be adversely affected, as you will be able to apply for special considerations. If this is the case then contact your faculty office as soon as you can to inform them.

You can find the contact details for your faculty here; whether it be Business and Law, Engineering and the Environment, Health Sciences, Humanities, Medicine, Natural and Environmental Sciences (Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Ocean and Earth Sciences), Physical and Applied Sciences, or Social and Human Sciences.

Note that all other areas of the University are open as well.  The SUSU Cafe, Shop and buildings are also all open as normal if you need a hot breakfast after making your way in.

Unilink buses have withdrawn all their services until the situation improves. The same is true of all Bluestar bus services.

Best of luck to everyone in their exams!

    Hey Really?,

    The exams are still on. The University had to make the decision early enough (7am) to give all students enough clear warning either way their decision went. They’re not scheduled to give another update until midday, with regards to the afternoon exams. If you feel you cannot travel, then notify your faculty about your situation and they should be able to advise you.

    Cheers and best of luck if you do have an exam today.

    Hey Update, in short – yes.

    The midday update will refer to whether the afternoon exams are on. If you’re concerned about travelling in, then contact your faculty and they should be able to advise you. Best of luck, if you’ve got an exam today.

    Cheers

    Sorry to ask an annoying question, but when do the exams get postponed to? Days or weeks or months ?

    Hey Emily, sorry that I can’t be more helpful, but we don’t know at this point.

    It depends on the situation. It literally could be next weekend or August. We’ll make sure to update students if exams are postponed. Cheers

    Hey Jian,

    It’s clear that the weather situation has worsened as the day has gone on. This decision was made before 7am, as the University wanted to give a clear message to students about their morning exams.

    We’ll have an update for you as soon as we know more on the situation for afternoon exams. Cheers
