ANU’s Acton campus will reopen, in part, on Tuesday, February 27, after flooding over the weekend forced the university to cancel Monday’s classes.
Other buildings such as the Chifley Library, the Tjabal Centre, the lower ground floor of the AD Hope Building and the university ovals will remain closed because of flood damage.
The Kambri construction site is being assessed for damage and work is expected to resume on the project next week.
“We closed the campus on Monday to allow essential safety checks on infrastructure including bridges, creek banks and electrical switchboards. We want to ensure all facilities are safe for students, staff and visitors,” said vice-chancellor Brian Schmidt.
The university is still evaluating the full damage from the flooding and expects full assessment to take some weeks.
