COVID-19 and Return to Campus Updates

Overview

Information for the Sheridan community

Sheridan has strict health and safety measures in place to protect the students, faculty, and staff who are required to be on campus at this time, in limited numbers. This page is the primary resource for information regarding our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and our procedures for safeguarding our community’s health, protocols for accessing campus, and reporting of symptoms or diagnoses.

Here you will also find information on available support resources, parking and campus services.

Please note; the situation is rapidly and continually evolving. Updates to this page are made frequently. Please continue to check back for the latest information.

Your health and safety is our top priority, and we’re ready to protect you during any in-person activity your program may require. That includes even more intensive cleaning protocols, maximum head counts on all of our campuses, screened access to campus, enforcement of physical distancing, mechanism to report and alert the community about illnesses on campus.

Sheridan has been added to 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.

Non-medical Face Mask or a Face-covering must be worn on campus

Sheridan requires everyone to wear a non-medical face mask or a face-covering while on campus (including hallways, washrooms, classrooms). A mask should have at least 2-layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. The mask should cover both your nose and mouth.

For information regarding proper mask/face covering use and care, please see these guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

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

Our services and business operations have transitioned to alternative formats, with staff working remotely to support you online and/or over the phone. Please connect with us!
