"We are supporting any students affected by the travel restrictions and ensuring our materials are being made available to study online in China," Mr Vann said.

"The health and safety of our staff, students and communities, both domestically and internationally, is of paramount concern to the University and we will continue to liaise with our partners and appropriate bodies to assist in our response."

No staff at the Wagga campus are reported to have been affected by the travel ban, however the university has suspended all travel to and via China and Hong Kong for the immediate future.
