Masks are now required in residence

Residents must wear masks anywhere they cannot maintain physical distance (6 feet, 2 metres) from each other. This includes:

Keeping our community safe

Everyone is urged to become fully vaccinated as soon as possible to support the safety of our community and university campus. More information will be shared in response to the president’s announcement as it becomes available.

Continue to follow the guidelines for residents, practice good hygiene and monitor your health closely. For more information about masks, visit Non-Medical Masks on Campus. Residence Services continues to follow the guidance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the university’s Public Health Response Team.
