Fall 2021 Residence FAQs during COVID-19

As of July 7, 2021

Quarantine units available if traveling from an international location for those living in residence:

  • Incoming international students who have an active residence booking and are arriving from outside of Canada are able to quarantine in Residence for the Fall term starting July 30.  more info.
  • Residence Services will not be offering self-isolation for non-residents.

Please review the IRCC website for travel exemptions for students and the ISS COVID-19 FAQs page before making plans to travel:

If you plan to travel to Canada for the fall 2021 term, make sure you understand the quarantine requirements you will need to follow and review the Travel Canada website requirements for all travellers coming to Canada.

Residents that are exempt from quarantine are still required to apply for quarantine with residence. All international students must prove they have a quarantine plan at the boarder if needed. Residents that do not need to quarantine will be able to move into residence and will not be charge for their early arrival. 

Masks are no longer mandatory in all of our buildings, aligning to the latest provincial public health restrictions and easing of the City of Calgary’s mask bylaw. However, please remember that masks are still required in all UCalgary vehicles with more than one person in the vehicle. University faculty, staff and students are also still expected to wear masks when attending medical clinic environments. For more information on UCalgary lifting mandatory mask requirements, please visit this mask FAQ page.

Residence does offer self-isolation rooms for those residents that are currently in room and need to self-isolate due to Covid symptoms or have tested positive for Covid. More info

For the Fall 2021 term all residence buildings will be in use and all bedrooms in all units will be used.

Kananaskis and Rundle Halls, will be at 75% occupancy compared to previous years.
