COVID-19 and Return to Campus Updates

Fall 2021 Update

We’re excited to begin welcoming more students back to campus.

As Ontario progresses through its re-opening plan, Sheridan is preparing to welcome more students back to campus for in-person learning this fall.  Our Fall term runs from September 7 to December 17, 2021. This site includes updated information about the outstanding learning opportunities that you can expect from Sheridan.  

Our academic, facilities, and health and safety teams are readying our campuses for more opportunities to connect with your faculty and peers in person, and access in-person supports to help you succeed. Whether you’re in our classrooms, libraries and learning commons, laboratories, studios, or cafeterias, we’ll continue to uphold our strict safety and hygiene practices to keep our community healthy. 

We’re also preparing innovative virtual learning experiences and tools to support remote access where required. Whether you’re learning in-person, online, or a combination of both - you will be immersed in meaningful learning experiences, engaged, supported and connected. To learn the delivery mode for your specific program, please visit myOTR.

As Ontario continues to re-open, we will work in partnership with our public health and provincial partners to determine the extent to which our on-campus facilities such as our bookstores, libraries and learning commons, studios, cafeterias and gyms will be available for use this fall. Please stay tuned for this information later this summer. With increased rates of vaccination, lower rates of infection and greater immunity, we expect to increase on-campus activity beyond what has been possible to date in 2020 and 2021, while continuing to respect public health measures.

This page will be updated regularly as we prepare for Fall 2021. Please continue to check back for the latest information about campus access, student supports service delivery, health & safety precautions, and more. 

Note for international students: Sheridan is on the Government of Canada's Designated Learning Institutions list, with an approved COVID-19 Readiness Plan. This designation confirms our eligibility to welcome international students travelling to Canada. To learn more about the DLI designation, please visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada site

While our campuses will provide limited access to those who require on-campus/in-person programming, we're still here to support everyone!

Many of our services and business operations continue to operate in alternative formats, with staff working remotely to support you online and/or over the phone. Please connect with us!

Face Masks must be worn on campus

Sheridan requires everyone to wear a non-medical face mask or a face-covering when arriving on the campus (during active screening, and hallway travel to classroom/work location).

All employees and students will be provided with and required to use a Sheridan-issued medical mask following their arrival. The medical masks will be available at the entrance in classrooms or in office locations.

Eye Protection on campus

Where people will be within two metres of each other for more than a transient interaction (e.g. passing by others), eye protection (i.e. a face shield, safety glasses, or safety goggles) is also required.

Proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE)

Once you retrieve a medical mask in your class, you can temporarily remove the non-medical mask you wore to campus to put on the medical mask. During this time, everyone must stand at least two metres apart from one another and remain stationary. The short period of time when the masks are being switched is not considered a significant risk by Public Health. Double-masking is not necessary and wearing a medical mask over a non-medical mask is not recommended at this time.


  • How to Don and Doff PPE (Poster) - provides information on how and in which order PPE should be worn (including medical masks).
  • How to Store a Non-Medical Mask Between Uses – provides information on how non-medical masks should be stored while not in use.
  • A non-medical mask should have at least 2-layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. An additional filtering layer between the 2-layers is recommended. The mask should cover your nose, mouth, and chin.
  • For information regarding proper mask/face covering use and care, please see these guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada and these guidelines from the Ontario Government.
