RETURNING TO CAMPUS GRADUALLY
Resuming our campus activities will take place in phases over the coming months and as public health guidance evolves. To reduce the overall COVID-19 risk to our University community, we will prioritize students and employees who must be on campus over those who can continue to effectively study and work from home.
When can I return to campus?
As we continue to gradually resume on-campus operations, many academic and service buildings have reopened for fall term with modified hours. You can find a list of which buildings are open and their operating hours on the What’s open on campus page.
Please help limit the spread of COVID-19 by limiting your time on campus to necessary visits, and by following public health guidance and the University’s safety recommendations.
Most academic buildings have reopened for the fall term. Some study spaces are available in academic buildings and will be marked with signage. For your safety, sit only in designated seats, wear a face covering and maintain physical distancing at all times when using the study spaces. Learn more.
EMPLOYEES AND RESEARCHERS
(including graduate student researchers)
Several administrative buildings remain locked and must be accessed with a key or a fob. Employees must obtain approval from their department/faculty to access buildings on campus.
If you are working or conducting research from home, please continue to do so until you receive further direction from your manager or supervisor. If you are not approved to return to work on campus but need temporary access to a building, you must get approval from your faculty, department or unit head
Principal Investigators who need to access campus lab facilities will continue to use the Return to Research request process.
