The university has said a wider range of activities can be resumed under Alert Level 2, but attendance needs to be recorded and physical distancing needs to be put in place.
New Zealand moved to Alert Level 2 last Thursday.
Under Level 2, more study spaces and student support services on campus can be resumed but remote learning will continue to be in place until the start of Semester 2.
Those who need to go to campus will have to record their attendance through Check-IN, an attendance recording device, which the university said could give them confidence it could handle a larger number of people on campus.
Services that continued throughout the lockdown, including the University Health and Counselling Service (UHCS), will continue operating under Level 3 conditions. It means cancelling all non-essential appointments, while the remaining will be conducted through phone or Zoom unless it is believed a face-to-face consultation is needed.
The General Library will continue to open under Level 2, but books can only be collected through requesting them online then picking them up when available. Fines are still being waived but books can be returned. Campus Card or AT Hop Card concession stickers will be available from the General Library at City Campus.
All residents can return to their student accommodation, while the Recreation Center has opened on Monday. The UBIQ Bookstore at City Campus will also reopen under Level 2 for click-and-collect services.
However, arrangements for Semester 2 have yet to be finalized.
The university said it intends to return to on-campus teaching, but some large lectures may still need to be online.
“There may need to be other changes to ensure appropriate physical distancing, but we are confident the majority of our teaching will be on-campus.”
The university also said an online learning option will be available for students who are offshore or are considered vulnerable under guidelines from the Ministry of Health.
