We are implementing carefully planned measures to keep residents safe.
Our residences will not be operating at full capacity for the 2021–2022 academic year, so we can create conditions that better favour social distancing. We are accepting about half the usual number of residents, with one person per room.
You'll be assigned your own bathroom, which you'll share with no more than three other specific residents. Common spaces will have a maximum capacity and guidelines for safe usage, with a posted cleaning schedule.
You won't be allowed to have outside visitors in residence. You can welcome one other member of your social distancing group in your room at a time.
Certified surgical face masks are mandatory on campus, including in residence common spaces and when you have a member of your social distancing group in your room. You'll need to respect a two-metre physical distancing space, even when wearing a mask.
A COVID-19 vaccination passport system is in effect in Quebec. In compliance with government guidelines, the vaccination passport is applied to some activities in residence, including the dining hall and all events and activities. Entry into residence and use of common areas and outdoor spaces are exempt.
Find more information on vaccinations on the COVID-19 FAQ for international students.
Instructions on how to download the vaccination passport on your phone are available online.
- If you were vaccinated outside of Quebec with a Health-Canada-approved vaccine, use the vaccination registry process before September 15, prior to downloading the vaccination passport.
- If you were vaccinated in Quebec, download digital proof of your vaccination or the VaxiCode application via the Apple Store or Google Store.
Contact tracing and self-isolation
We have a system in place for notifying residents who may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, and we have self-isolation facilities available.
Students arriving from outside Canada are subject to mandatory quarantine before they move into residence.
We follow clear cleaning protocols as developed by the university's Environmental Health & Safety unit, with procedures that focus on high touch-point areas such as bathrooms, elevators and common spaces.
You'll need to complete two mandatory training sessions before you move into residence, just to make sure you are aware of all the protocols in place.
Community code of conduct
Everyone who lives in residence will agree to a code of Community Living Standards and Discipline which includes rules for staying safe, as well as COVID-19 rules and protocols. Familiarize yourself with both before you move in.
