COVID-19 Club Return to Play

RMIT Student Life Return to Play Application Procedure 

Effective May 25 2021. This procedure will be adjusted as current advice changes.  

Today you will likely have seen that the Victorian Government has made key announcements relating to new restrictions in Melbourne which come into effect at 6pm tonight, Tuesday 25 May. These include:

  • Mandatory wearing of masks in all indoor spaces at all times.
  • Smaller numbers allowed at public and private gatherings.
  • Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 exposure sites and isolation instructions.
  • Check in all club event attendees
  • On-campus gatherings are limited to 200 people.
  • Off-campus activities should abide by current Victorian Government and Venue regulations. 


Masks must now be worn at all times in all indoor spaces on campus. This includes workplaces, shared spaces, library, research and learning spaces and the Urban School. Please wear your mask whenever you are indoors on campus or travelling on public transport. If you forget or misplace your mask, you can collect a spare mask from security or from roving security officers. 

On-campus activities

On-campus gatherings are limited to 200 people. These events must comply with RMIT’s COVIDSafe Event Guidelines including registrations and room capacity limits.

COVIDSafe Monitors will be roving campus to assist and ensure everyone is complying with our COVIDSafe requirements.

What you can do

The most important thing you can do to help stop the spread of COVID-19: if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have visited any of the identified at-risk locations, please get a tested and isolate as directed. Do not come to campus if you are feeling unwell. If you have been to a Tier 1 or Tier 2 location and been to campus since you were at that location, please contact HR Assist. If you have students who have been to a Tier 1 location and been to campus since they were at that location, please direct them to RMIT Connect. Staff and students should complete the daily health declaration every day they come to campus and swipe their access card at building entrances.

Stay up to date

As this situation is rapidly evolving, we are still awaiting further information from the government however we encourage all staff to regularly visit WorkLife and the Department of Health website.
