Event Changes and Cancellations
Most events and varsity, intramural, and club sports activity will be suspended. Through Fall 2020, the University will not be permitting third-party events on campus.
The Acadia Athletics Complex currently remains closed for all users. A phased re-opening is underway with privately-owned businesses in the complex resuming operations. Outdoor camps will return in July and August. The Complex (including the Fitness Centre) will be open in September, subject to new health and hygiene protocols and booking procedures. In addition, our Athletics staff are developing new fitness and recreational programming for students that meets Nova Scotia Public Health and sport-specific guidelines and requirements.
If you have a facility membership that was suspended as of March 16th, we will offer an extension to your facility membership for the time missed during the closure once our Box Office reopens.
- Varsity Athletics events are suspended for the fall.
Regular conference season and postseason competition has been suspended until January 2021. We encourage student-athletes to read our FAQ.
We are working closely with our Atlantic University Sport partners, public health officials, and U SPORTS to determine how and when it will be safe for varsity sport student-athletes, coaches, and staff to return to practice and competition.
