Campus services FAQ

COVID-19 FAQ (Updated: September 14, 2020)


Is campus open?

Access to campus is limited. Students, instructors, and staff who are authorized to be on campus will check in at the marked entrance point of the building that they need to access.

Using access-control software will reduce the need to sign in with pen and paper, while ensuring the privacy of users. Details about campus user access will be shared with Manitoba Health — if necessary — to facilitate contact tracing.
