Cameron Library to open for individual study bookings on Monday

Cameron Library will be reopening with 15% capacity for individual study starting this Monday, March 29th. UAlberta OneCard access and advance bookings are required. Remote library options also remain available for U of A researchers, students, and staff through Curbside Pickup and online collections. Visit Library Services During Covid-19 to pre-book your Cameron seat or for more info.

Vaccines not currently available on campus

COVID-19 vaccines are not currently available directly on our campuses. See AHS' Immunization Booking webpage to learn more about when and where to book a vaccine appointment, and currently participating pharmacies. We’ll let the community know as soon as COVID-19 vaccines are available at the University Health Centre and University Health Centre Pharmacy.

Even with vaccine progress, safety measures still in effect

A reminder to the U of A community that Campus Safety Measures continue to be in effect across all of our campuses, including mask-wearing and physical distancing. While many community members have been encouraged by recent vaccine progress and discussions of Fall 2021, for now, we each have the responsibility to minimize our time on campus by traveling directly to our destination or taking advantage of remote student and campus services. Public Health guidelines still require that you stay home if you are symptomatic until your symptoms are gone (regardless of a COVID-19 test result).
