Student and Staff Card Programming

Programing rooms on staff and student cards is now processed by Security Services on Main Campus to align with Uni Policy. Rodney Boatwright (Facilities Support Officer) will no longer complete this task. Grant Crompton (Campus Manager) and Guy McEwan (Venue Ops Manager) will manage this process. Rodney will be able to check card access. Click here for more information.

Student Musician Requests

The Conservatorium receives a high volume of requests for student musicians. Kate Drain coordinates these requests, so kindly email Kate with the requestor’s contact details and she will advertise the requirement to all students. 

Visas and visitors

Every non-Australian visitor requires the appropriate visa for the activities they perform at the Con, whether paid or unpaid. The University’s Immigration Officer requires 8 weeks’ notice in advance of intent to engage a visitor, especially where a visitor will be requiring a University-sponsored Entertainment (420) visa. Contact Heggy for more information.

Guest lecturers and performers

For every guest invited to SCM, paid or unpaid, an online form (see Guidelines on the SCM intranet) captures any preliminary information about the arrangement, ideally at least one month in advance.  Faculty professional staff then proceed with logistical and artistic support as required.

 

Please note that two months may be required if the guest does not hold a Australian or NZ passport and does not have a 400 or 420 visa.
