Early Endemic Phase - Returning to Campus

  1. Operating hours are 7.00am to 7.00pm, Monday to Thursday and Saturday. Some students may have different working hours e.g. research and graduate students. This will be subject to each faculty’s standard operating procedures in ensuring staggered and cohorting attendance of respective students.
  2. All meetings or sessions with other students or staff will be done remotely whenever possible. If face-to-face is necessary, precautionary measures must be taken by those attending.
  3. UBD will be operating with a capacity limit of 75% in accordance to the size of the room/ laboratory capacity. The university has pre-identified rooms or spaces that will be used by staff or students for teaching, learning or research. These rooms will undergo the Sanitization and Hygiene Management Protocol. All other rooms will be kept locked and will not be accessible.

For entry to campus, all staff, students and visitors must fulfil the following conditions:

Lectures will continue to be delivered online mainly on CANVAS. Activities that require physical presence or face-to-face interaction will be controlled and limited. This includes lectures for class sizes not more than 75 students, tutorials, problem-based learning sessions, practical, laboratory sessions, and clinical sessions. These sessions will be held in pre-identified teaching rooms and spaces, complete with their own premise QR code and a maximum occupancy of 75% of the room or space capacity.

There will be no changes to the academic calendar.

All staff and students are required to perform ART - every two weeks on Monday (for staff); every week before the first teaching session for the week (for students) and to submit the results via the link below.
