In this together: Be aware. Be safe. Be considerate. Let's do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.


What you need to know

  • Non-medical masks or face coverings are required in most indoor common areas on our campuses, in alignment with the Province of Nova Scotia. Learn more about health and safety on campus.
  • The majority of courses for Winter 2021 will be online, with a limited number of courses with accreditation requirements, experiential learning components, or tutorial or lab components being delivered safely in-person. Learn more.
  • To ensure continued safety, any university event that can take place virtually should continue to do so. For more details, visit the Events and Gatherings section of our Campus Services page.
  • With safety as our paramount concern, Dalhousie is undertaking a gradual, phased approach to returning to campus operations. Many campus buildings, offices and services are not available in-person, while others are offering modified or online services.
