Campus Safety Checklist

What you need to know about visiting campus this fall

We’re closely following public health measures and cleaning standards, but if you are coming to campus, we need your help to minimize any risks. Below is a quick list of the essentials: what you need to know about campus safety protocols before and during a visit to U of A campuses.
