Concordia has gradually re-opened hundreds of labs in the sciences, engineering, social sciences, fine arts and humanities on both the Sir George Williams and Loyola campuses, as well as a number self-study spaces in the libraries. Health and safety protocols apply.

The Webster and Vanier libraries are offering limited access to study areas for undergraduate and graduate students, with a reservation.

Library study space is intended as an emergency service for students who don’t have an adequate study environment at home, or who have come to campus for in-person course activities and need to attend online courses before returning home.

For instructions on how to reserve a study space, and details on hours and services available, visit the Library's COVID-19 information page.
