Classes to remain virtual; remote work to continue wherever possible until January 30

As announced by President Lachemi on December 16, the university has made the decision to hold classes virtually until January 30 out of concern for health and safety.


Can I still come to campus?

Students will not have access to campus buildings during this period, unless required for critical SRC activity in research labs. If you need to enter a building, please contact Ryerson Security to discuss whether access may be granted under exceptional circumstances.

For employees, if you have OneCard access to a building or space, your OneCard access will be maintained, however we ask that you do not come to campus unless absolutely necessary. Please inform Security if you are entering a campus building for your safety, as most buildings will be empty.

A message from President Mohamed Lachemi

The Ryerson community is meeting the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic challenge with a spirit of innovation, collaboration and the need to put the safety and wellbeing of our community at the forefront of all that we do.

Collectively, the Ryerson community has come together to make every effort to ensure that our students and faculty are supported, our programs continue to be delivered, and that SRC activities and the important work of the university continues. 

No doubt, this is a trying time for us all. However the flexibility, resilience and determination of our community has been remarkable.

The majority of our courses are being offered virtually for the time being, with as many on campus activities as provincial and public health guidelines permit, along with an array of online extra-curricular programming and academic supports. With the safety and well being of our community our top priority, the university continues to follow the advice and direction of government and health authorities.

On these pages you will find details of supports and programming in place to help our students succeed and adapt to a different kind of learning environment. Additional information is also available on each faculty’s website.

My heartfelt gratitude to every member of our community. Working together with goodwill we will continue to adapt and innovate to create the best possible experience for our students. 

Mohamed Lachemi
