Preventive Measures

What we're doing to keep you safe

There are health and safety protocols in place to keep you and your community safe.

  • Decreasing density in residence
  • Closing dorm style units that share washrooms (impacts all towers in Lister, with the exception of Schäffer)
  • Increasing cleaning frequency
  • Instituting rules for current residents regarding masks, hand-washing, physical distancing and more
  • Installing hand sanitizer stations
  • Closing residence fitness centres (residents can still access campus recreation centres)
  • Limiting public access in multiple buildings
  • Changing procedures dining hall and how the meal plan works to better support physical distancing

Residence Services continues to follow all preventative health measures as directed by Alberta Health Services, the Government of Alberta, the Government of Canada and the University of Alberta.
