Coronavirus Update

Progressive return to campus well underway

Efforts toward a phased-in and progressive return to campus are underway, in accordance with public health directives. While teleworking remains the norm for the vast majority of uOttawa employees, some researchers have recently been approved to return to their labs. Research activity on campus will be expanded during the summer as faculty plans for a progressive return are approved. Other sectors, such as housing, will also see increased activity in anticipation of the fall semester when a small number of students will return to campus.

Resources for individuals returning to campus have been developed, including an online COVID‑19 orientation training module, and description of other health and safety and sanitary precautions that have been implemented on campus such as new signage.

Events on campus

In light of public health directives and to ensure the health and safety of members of our community, all uOttawa-organized conferences and meetings involving participants who must travel from outside Ottawa are cancelled until the end of October.

As of September 1, uOttawa community members will be allowed to host specific events but only if such activities are only attended by local participants. These events must respect public health directives and for now, no external groups will be eligible to host events on campus.

For the most up to date event guidelines, please refer the Conventions and Reservations website.

Updates from Gee-Gees camps

uOttawa Gee-Gees camps are happy to announce that they will be expanding their virtual Gee-Gees camps programming in the coming weeks to provide new and creative interactive sessions. Virtual programming is currently free of charge and available in both official languages.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has significantly delayed the mandatory maintenance and repairs scheduled to occur at the University’s sports facilities. The pool, gyms and ice rinks will remain closed until all repairs and maintenance work can be completed.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel in-person Gee-Gees camps. If you have any questions, would like to sign your kids up for our virtual activities or require more information,feel free to contact the Gee-Gees camps team at
