Message from the COO

Welcome to On&OffCampus (let's see how long this new name is needed...).

By now, most of us are working and studying remotely, learning how to work the technology and juggle the pleasure and pressure of being at home. But some of you remain on campus - whether campus is your home, you are undertaking COVID-19 research, or you are are busy ensuring activities on campus are supported and safe.

Whatever your work circumstances, it's important that you are safe, healthy and that your wellbeing is supported. Please take a moment to fill out the circumstances eForm, which will provide information about your health, travel and work circumstances. It will help us to support you, to help those in need, and to understand if there are common issues across the University community. Your privacy will be respected.
