Building Access and Amenity Status

Building access and amenities are, and may continue to be, limited to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  1. For the Fall term buildings will be open to all staff, students and the public during scheduled/normal operational periods. Faculty, staff and students will continue to have ONEcard access to university buildings as assigned by departmental facility access control administrators (FACAs) for after-hours building access.
  2. Please note that UAPS and F&O do not have the capacity to respond to building or office access requests. Therefore, Faculty and staff need to contact their department APOs to ensure they have the required access to buildings.
  3. Most food outlets across campus are open during the Fall term. Refer to the Open Food Locations on Campus list for further information.
  4. For the Fall term all common areas will be available for use. Occupants are reminded to follow good hand-hygiene practices following the use of any shared space.
  5. AHS buildings on or adjacent to our campus will remain on lock down, with screening and other COVID-19 safety measures in place. Health Sciences community members will need to follow these requirements when accessing specific Alberta Health Sciences controlled spaces:
    • For Students:
      • Only health science students, with placements in these buildings, will be able to get access to the hospitals. Entry for students will be through the 112th or 114th Street entrances.
      • Students will need to:
        • Show an AHS ID card to access the buildings.
        • Be screened and complete an AHS Fit For Work to meet AHS requirements.
      • Students should link to the AHS Fit For Work app on their phones, and be prepared to produce the completed results for admittance. An AHS login id and password will be needed to access the web application.
    • As these buildings are struggling to offer socially distanced spaces for their staff, these students must return to UA buildings for lunch and desk work as appropriate.
    • For access to the Clinical Sciences building, a card reader is located on a door to the left of the Mazankowski main entrance on the main floor for UA students and staff to avoid screening through the hospitals.
    • For access to the Scott library, or the pedway to the Zeidler Building, students and staff are to enter from the Heritage Medical Research Centre (HMRC) pedway. UA COVID protocols will apply in the library.
    • The Dental Clinic in the Kaye Edmonton Clinic will continue to do their own screening through their designated door. For other students doing practicums here, students are to use the main door entrance with the AHS screening protocols, as described.
    • Students should link to the AHS Fit For Work app on their phones, and be prepared to produce the completed results for admittance. An AHS login id and password will be needed to access the web application.
