Return to Campus

The University of Guelph is following government and public health directives as we work to make our campuses ready for returning students, staff and faculty. COVID-19 has created many changes in the ways we study, teach, work and live at U of G, but we are coming through this pandemic stronger than ever.

We are taking a gradual, phased approach to our return to campuses. To help keep our community safe, please only come to campus if you need to. The information on this site applies to faculty, staff, students and visitors to our campuses.
