WHERE TO CHECK IN STARTING SEPT 20

Rental Groups

Rental groups using University of Alberta sport and recreation facilities are responsible for ensuring all participants meet the Campus & Community Recreation Restrictions Exemption Program expectations. Campus & Community Recreation reserves the right to conduct random checks of participants associated with your group when using these facilities.

We have a shared responsibility to keep our staff, students, members, and clients safe. We ask for your support and cooperation in the implementation of this process. Above all, we ask for kindness and patience in working with our staff members. We expect this process will cause delays, however, we will do our best to conduct our checks to ensure the safety of all students, staff, and community members.
