Visitor access

For Concordia, a visitor is someone who comes to campus on an occasional basis but is not paid or under contract with the university. Examples include audience members, visiting professors, government inspectors or camera crews.

  • Before your visitor comes to campus, you must send them the COVID-19 Campus Access Directives for Visitors (EHS Form 218) and ensure that they understand the safety directive and their obligations.
  • You are responsible for your visitor at all times while they are on campus. Visitors may NOT circulate freely throughout university buildings.

Third-party contractor access

A procedure has been put in place to ensure that any third-party contractor coming to complete work on university property does not present a risk to the health and safety of the university community and is aware of the preventive measures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you require a third-party contractor to come onto university property to work, you must complete the following steps at least five working days before their arrival:

1. Verify if the contractor is on the list. You can confirm this information using EHS Form 224.

2. If the contractor is not on the list, have their manager complete and sign EHS Form 217 (Working At Concordia University - COVID-19 Procedure for external stakeholders). Concordia recommends filling out the form with your information as a university contact (UC) before sending it to the contractor's manager.

3. Send the completed form to Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) by email to

4. An EHS safety advisor will review the signed form.

5. If approved, the contractor will be added to the authorized list and they will have access to the university. To avoid any access refusals, you must wait for confirmation before planning the contractor's visit.
