Update 6 - Storm Event 20 November - Campuses open, use caution

Friday, 20th November 2020 - 3:55pm

Location: Newcastle (Callaghan)

After a week of working to continually clear, clean and restore access to areas across the University, we are pleased to report that much of the damage and debris has been addressed across campus.

It is important to understand that the storm incident over Monday night and Tuesday morning affected many trees across campus. While the team at IFS have worked tirelessly to address as many potential risks of future falling branches as possible, it is still critical that staff remain aware of these risks when moving around campus.

Carpark 8 in Engineering remains closed until 24 November, and the Physics building is partially reopened.
Thank you to our colleagues in IFS for all the efforts and work to secure and clear our campus.
