Established in Fall, 2021, The University’s Return to Campus Plan (PDF – 295KB) will guide us in our return to campus. It is based on a framework jointly prepared by Nova Scotia’s universities and approved by NS Public Health. It is both a flexible and living plan; we will make adjustments as needed and will keep our community informed of any changes.

The University has created a set of principles to guide our decision making and to support our campus plans for a post pandemic mode of operations. The key principle underlying these plans
is flexibility to adapt to the situation as it evolves. Implementation will be supported by clear and regular communications with all University stakeholders.

These guiding principles are:

  • The health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty and staff are paramount.
  • Our planning will continue to be aligned with Public Health guidance and recommendations.
  • Students, faculty, and staff share responsibility for the safe use of University facilities.
  • Our approach will recognize the specific needs of those members of the University community who may be particularly vulnerable to the impact of contracting COVID-19.
