Request a seat on campus to undertake my formal exam(s)

There are a number of computer room facilities and quiet spaces on campus suitable for taking exams:
  • Computer Room Facilities
  • Quiet or Silent study areas - Library
If one of the following is relevant to you and you cannot make alternative arrangements, you may apply to book a space on campus for your examination sitting(s):
  • Your home environment is not conducive to sitting a 2-3 hour exam
  • You do not have reliable access to the internet

To apply for a seat on campus to sit your formal online at home exam, please email (see link below) ensuring that you include the following information:

  1. Student ID
  2. Subject code/s for which you’re applying for
  3. Information on whether you require a space to bring your own device (quiet space with Wi-Fi access) or whether you require a computer lab (space and University device to sit your exam)
  4. Reason for your request
  5. Location (Townsville or Cairns campus)

Available spaces are very limited on campus. The spaces are strictly ‘first in, first served’ opportunities and allocation will be completed on a first come basis.

The exam spaces on campus are just that, spaces for sitting exams. Staff will monitor access but there will be no in-room technical or academic support provided in these spaces. The staff member does have the right to ask you to leave the room where disruption to other students is observed.

Support will be identical to that available to students sitting exams online at home. We ask for your support in keeping on-campus spaces available for students in genuine need. If you are allocated an on-campus space we appreciate your cooperation around the need for respectful behaviour and adhering to hygiene protocols.

Please do not attend campus if you are unwell; you can apply for a deferred exam or special consideration if illness impacts your ability to sit your exams.
