The COVID-19 landscape remains dynamic and ever evolving. As we move through the Fall 2020 semester and beyond, our decision making continues to be guided by a set of principles established by University leadership. Top amongst these principles are our commitments to the health and wellness of our campus community. Following extensive consultation, the University of Guelph, like other Ontario universities, has decided to restrict campus residence to students with special circumstances, such as limited internet access, international students, unsuitable living arrangements for successful studying, or those with no alternative housing.
