Ridley’s Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Posted: 24/03/20

As a proactive response to the COVID-19 threat, all on-campus lectures and meetings at Ridley College have ceased, and the campus, including the library, is closed. These decisions have not been made lightly. They are made in the context of our care and concern for the whole Ridley community – students, staff and faculty – and the broader community. For on-campus classes and meetings, Ridley College is moving to a virtual learning platform utilising Zoom technology to host lectures and to support our community focus.

Although the Ridley campus is closed, we want to assure you that Ridley faculty and staff, including Registry staff, tutors, the student support officers, and librarians, are available and ready to assist students. Many staff members will be working from home, at least some of the time, so in the first instance, we recommend making contact by email. Staff will then have further contact with you by phone or online (e.g. using Zoom) as needed.

From Monday 23 March 2020 all campus lectures, guided spiritual formation groups and vocational mentoring groups will be hosted via Zoom until further notice. Lectures and group meetings will be live-streamed at the usual time.
