Our campus is open and your comfort and safety are our top priorities.

New Protocols (Updated January 13, 2022)

In keeping with new protocols announced by the Government of Nova Scotia, we are implementing the following measures, effective immediately.:

  • Academic Courses - Remote Delivery from January 10 - 22, 2022: Academic courses will be delivered remotely for the first TWO weeks of classes. Classes will start as scheduled with online delivery on Monday, January 10, 2022 and continue to be delivered online for all students until January 22, 2022. At this time, our plan is for course delivery to return to the mode for which it is scheduled in Banner, starting on Monday, January 24, 2022. This means that in-person classes will be delivered in-person and online courses will be delivered online etc. after January 24. 
  • Campus Opening: Saint Mary’s University’s campus will reopen after the holiday break as scheduled on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. Student resources and services will be open and available to students, including but not limited to residence, food services, advising, library services, IT helpdesk, and athletics and recreation. Staff will return to work as scheduled and faculty members may access their offices, labs or other spaces as needed as of January 4.
  • Masks: Masks are required in all common areas unless you are seated to eat or drink. Signs will go up in these areas to help communicate this change.
  • Employees continue to work both on campus and remotely. Saint Mary’s University has implemented flexible work plans, allowing staff and faculty to work safely on campus and from home. If you have any questions, please contact your supervisor.
  • Events will not be in person. Events will either be online, postponed, or cancelled until further notice. Please check with event organizers for details. 
  • Homburg Centre and The Dauphinee Centre continue to operate. There are no changes for Athletics and Recreation. Consistent with provincial guidelines, proof of vaccination is required to enter the Homburg Centre, the Gorsebrook Lounge and The Dauphinee Centre.
  • Residence Services will continue to operate. There are no changes to on-campus housing and residence protocols or services.
