Masks on Campus

Last updated on April 7, 2022

As of March 16, 2022, masks are no longer required on University of Alberta properties. Masks are still strongly recommended in high-traffic and high-occupancy areas and when working in close proximity to others.

As masks will be worn based on personal preference, it is important for all community members to contribute to a respectful work and learning environment.

For those who wish to wear masks, it is recommended you choose a mask that fits properly and is comfortable enough to wear for the duration you require it. Choosing a higher level of mask (such as an ASTM medical mask or N95 respirator) will offer better personal protection to the wearer.

Please see the available guidance on masks below.


Some individuals who may be required to be on campus may be part of a high-risk group (immunocompromised or other comorbidities). These individuals may wish to wear the highest level of protection available. To complete a personal risk severity assessment, please see the online tool available from Alberta Health Services.

Academic Accommodations are available for students with documented disabilities, including those who are immunocompromised or are seeking guidance for modifications on additional grounds. Medical Accommodations are available for staff who have a medical condition that impacts their ability to work on campus, or who require alternate work arrangements due to a personal health condition. 


The University has a limited quantity of N95 respirator masks available to employees and students who need them across all University of Alberta campuses. Individuals may request up to five masks by showing their ONEcard. Masks can be accessed at the following locations:

North Campus InfoLink Locations

North Campus Residence Locations

South Campus

Campus Saint-Jean


A location at Enterprise Square will be added to this list when masks are available.
