Employees Working Remotely

Ryerson University is committed to supporting employees and leaders during this time of uncertainty. Please review the variety of recommendations in this section and explore the resources available to you.

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.

You must be vaccinated to access campus

Effective Monday, October 18, individuals accessing campus or in-person university activities off-campus must be fully vaccinated or have received an approved exemption from the university. Individuals who have approved exemptions are still required to participate in the Rapid Antigen Testing Program.

The university has implemented a number of health and safety protocols and requirements to protect the health and safety of our community. If you’re planning to visit campus, please review what you need to access campus.
