Conference cancellation

The developments surrounding COVID-19 have seen unprecedented actions being taken by the Australian Government to stem the rate of community infection. Universities have also taken strong measures to ensure the health and safety of staff and students.


The well being of our participants, staff, volunteers and officials is of the utmost importance and as such, UniSport have taken to decision to cancel our 2020 UniSport conference that was due to be held in May.
