It is a requirement for all people on campus to wear a mask or face covering at all times, except when eating or drinking (while appropriately physically distanced). Please bring your own mask. A mask should have at least 2-layers of tightly woven material such as cotton or linen. The mask should cover both your nose, mouth and chin. You can find information on how to create a mask here if you do not have one.


There will a Security presence on campus 24/7 and members at the Welcome desk late into the evening who can help you with your questions or concerns or escorting you to your car if required.  Please go to the desk and ask for this service.  Sheridan has 147 emergency phones, which have been installed for safety inside buildings and on the grounds at TrafalgarDavis and Hazel McCallion campuses.

Wayfinding Signs

Upon entering, and when on campus, you will see several wall signs and floor decals providing information and restrictions, directing foot traffic in narrow corridors and stairwells (e.g. ‘one way’), and indicating where to line-up and wait for classes, the cafeteria, and printers, etc. These signs are in place to enable physical distancing and for the health and well-being of all Sheridan community members.

Bathrooms and Water Fountains

Please try to utilize a washroom closest to your classroom, office, or lab space. You will notice signage indicating which sinks have been designated for use under safe physical distancing guidelines.  The water fountain feature is not functional, however the no-contact “fill up” feature is still operational for bottles.
