Phased Return to Campus

The Division of Finance and Administration oversees the university’s information technology servicesfacilities services,  community safety and ancillary  services, and continues to focus on three objectives: promoting campus health and safetysupporting academic and research excellence, and meeting the diverse operational needs of the university.  

To ensure a safe environment where everyone can feel comfortable returning to campus, the following procedures are being implemented:

Non-medical fabric mouth and nose coverings will be available to students, faculty and staff who are required to be on campus and to be used when physical distancing is not possible. According to Canada’s chief public health officer, the wearing of a mouth and nose cover is an added layer of protection that can help protect those around you. A non-medical mouth and nose cover is NOT a replacement for required personal protective equipment (PPE).

New sanitizer dispensers will be installed across both campuses.

Signage that encourages and instruct everyone to practice physical distancing and proper hand hygiene and signs indicating maximum occupancy in rooms and elevators.

Protective measures such as Plexiglass barriers and sneeze guards will be installed in high traffic areas where maintaining physical distancing isn’t possible.

Frequent cleaning and disinfecting in high traffic areas in keeping with guidelines from Public Health Ontario.

Physical distancing procedures with re-arranged classrooms, shared offices, libraries, research and teaching labs and other spaces.
