September 21, 2020: Nova Scotia Public Health has informed Dalhousie University of a probable COVID-19 case among the student community living off-campus in Halifax. The individual in question has been self-isolating. More information can be found here.

  • Are you a new or returning student coming to Halifax or Truro this fall? Here’s everything you need to know. If you arrived from outside Atlantic Canada on or after August 21, you will be required to complete a travel check-in form upon arrival, to self-isolate for 14 days, and to undergo three COVID-19 tests during your self-isolation period. Learn more. 
  • The Fall 2020 term will be conducted predominantly online, with limited exceptions in select programs where in-person learning is required to fulfill industry or field-specific accreditation requirements. Learn more.

  • Our plans for Winter 2021 are focused on a mix of online and in-person instruction, in which a significant majority of courses will continue to be delivered online but some courses with particular accreditation requirements or significant experiential learning components will be delivered in person or in a hybrid or blended format. Learn more.
  • With safety as our paramount concern, Dalhousie is undertaking a gradual, phased approach to returning to campus operations. During this time, many campus buildings, offices and services are not available in-person, while others are offering modified or online services.

  • Our safety protocols require the use of non-medical masks or face coverings in most indoor common areas on our campuses, in alignment with the Province of Nova Scotia. Learn more about health and safety on campus.

  • To ensure continued safety, we are not permitting indoor meetings/events/gatherings on on campus until at least October 15. Outdoor events will be considered provided a safety plan is completed, approved and followed and space is available. For more details, visit the Events and Gatherings section of our Campus Services page.

The fall term will be delivered predominantly online with limited numbers of staff and faculty permitted on campus. Learn about what we're doing to ensure safety and continue to deliver a high-quality academic experience.
