COVID-19 information and screening Learn how we’re keeping our campus community safe, healthy and engaged during our gradual return to campus.
Note: Faculty, staff, students and visitors must complete the mandatory screening questionnaire before coming to campus.
Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Process for requesting access to campus buildings

The university remains focused on continuing to have employees work remotely to keep density as low as possible on campus and to maintain physical distancing for those whose work requires them to be on campus.

Mandatory COVID-19 screening – complete the questionnaire before coming to campus

Effective Thursday, October 22, anyone planning to visit Ontario Tech University’s campus, including faculty, staff, students and visitors, must complete a brief (less than one-minute) COVID-19 screening questionnaire. The Government of Ontario has mandated this screening process for all post-secondary institutions.

Steps:

  1. On the day you plan to come to campus, open the COVID-19 Pre-Screen Tool and enter your Banner/Student ID and password. External visitors must provide their name and email address.
  2. Answer the three questions and submit the form.
  3. You will receive an automated email confirmation based on your responses with a directive indicating either:
    • You may go to campus; or
    • Do not come to campus.

If you receive permission to come to campus, keep the confirmation email and be prepared to show it to Campus Security personnel prior to entering any university building. This confirmation is valid until 11:59 p.m. on the date you complete the questionnaire.

Our ability to provide a safe on-campus experience depends upon each member of the university community doing their part for our collective health and safety. Thank you for your co-operation.
