News & Updates

Valued SMUfit Members and Community, 

We would like to provide an update on: Easing of Restrictions, Tower Road Construction, Gym Floor Maintenance, Holiday and Summer Hours, Summer Programs, the SMU Food Room Food Drive, and Track Access. 

Saint Mary’s University easing of restrictions: 

As previously communicated, Saint Mary’s approach to ending COVID-19 related restrictions has been gradual and measured to minimize disruption during the academic term and to take additional time to assess the COVID-19 landscape. At this time, the University has determined that the requirements for masks on campus will be ending July 1, 2022. At this time, members are encouraged to wear masks, but it is not required.  

Tower Road Construction: 

Please note that the construction on Tower Road will not influence the parking for The Homburg Centre. You will be able to continue to park in our back parking lot with no interruption.  

Gym Floor Maintenance: 

Beginning June 29th, the gymnasium floor (basketball courts) will be undergoing maintenance. The product used is non-toxic and water based, however, there may be a smell associated with this process. We will have increased ventilation throughout this project.
