COVID-19 Updates

Student Life

Student services designed to keep you healthy


Your efforts have helped prevent community spread of COVID-19 on campus. This year, we want to bring back as much of the traditional campus experience as we can. We are resuming classroom teaching, residences will include double occupancy dorm rooms, and varsity sports are returning.

If the province’s reopening plan is successful and we all do our part to follow safety procedures on campus, we expect additional restrictions to be lifted over the course of the year.

Back to Class

  • Classrooms

    Most courses will return to traditional classroom instruction. Students will be approximately 1 metre apart from each other for physical distancing. Masks are required until provincial policies are relaxed.

  • Other Class and Lab Formats

    Several courses will remain online, but most classes will be held in-person. Some labs may follow a hybrid learning model.

Campus Life

  • Dining, Common Areas, and Campus Stores

    In most shared spaces on campus, you’ll need to wear a non-medical mask and allow 1 metre of physical distance between yourself and others. Masks are not required outdoors when you are adequately distanced from others.

  • Residence Life

    Double rooms will be available this year. Chipman House will serve as a residence for those who need to temporarily quarantine or if extra housing capacity is needed.

  • Activities, Events, and Sports

    There will be more opportunities to participate in events and club activities as long as appropriate protocols (ex. masks and physical distancing) are adhered to. Acadia’s Athletics Complex continues to reopen additional facilities. Varsity sports will return in the fall, although it is uncertain when spectators can return to games.
