Summary of changes and news (updated February 25, 2021, 9:50 a.m.)

Planning for the Fall 2021 term

The University has an ambitious plan to provide a full, enriching on-campus experience with an increased number of courses to be delivered in person or using hybrid formats. Currently, only a limited number of courses are being offered in-person, due to current health measures.

What this means for:

COVID-19 Daily Assessment tool

All employees, students, and visitors coming to campus are required to use the tool to conduct a health self-assessment every day prior to arrival. Find the tool on SecurUO or access it from the self-assessment tool webpage.

Ontario's et Quebec’s regulations

You are strongly advised to continue to follow the public health advice in effect in Ontario and Quebec. Please visit the Government of Ontario’s website and the Government of Quebec's website for more details.

Letter of authorization

Only essential travel will be authorized by the Ontario and Quebec governments, in particular to attend a face-to-face evening course or to a laboratory.

Please contact your faculty or supervisor to discuss whether a letter of authorization to travel to and from campus is necessary for you. While they are not required in Ontario, in certain situations they may be helpful. With Quebec’s curfew, there is a higher likelihood that you may be intercepted by law enforcement and the letter will assist you with this interaction as it indicates that you are required to travel to and from campus.


  • Students: The FAQ has been updated to address several questions about the Fall 2021 term.
  • Services and resources: The take-out service in the Dining Room is no longer in operation, as students can now sit and eat on site.
