Planning ramps up for return to campus in the fall of 2020 

The university’s phased return to campus strategy is moving forward on several fronts to support expanded operations in teaching, learning, and research for the fall of 2020. This week, senior leaders and managers in each area on all our campuses will begin using those new policies and protocols to work on their return to campus planning. As coordinated planning for the fall is finalized, many members of the campus community will be affected. We are making a number of documents available now so you can get a sense of what return to campus will look like. Learn more.

Reminder: Main campus secured effective Thursday, April 2

Starting April 2, buildings on main campus will be transitioning to electronic or key access only. Faculty and staff who normally can access our buildings with their Unicard or issued keys can still do so.

Working on campus

As was shared earlier with the campus community, we remind everyone that only those who need to be on campus should be on campus. If your studies or work require you to come to campus in person, please practice the social distancing guidelines recommended by the Government of Alberta, such as: Keep at least six feet (the length of a bicycle) from others. Avoid overcrowding in elevators or other enclosed spaces. Wash or sanitize your hands after touching communal surfaces.

We also ask that you take safety precautions that reflect how quiet campus is right now. If you have to come to campus in person, please let somebody know where you’ll be and how long you’ll be there, or come with a (six-foot-away-from-you) buddy. Please don’t be surprised if a member of our Campus Security approaches you to see if you’re OK. Your safety is important to us. 

Working from home

Effective Sunday, March 22 all faculty and staff who can perform their work from home should do so, until further notice. Only those that are performing functions that require them to be on site should work on campus.
