Update: Weekend move out protocol

Students living in on-campus residences have been asked, if they are able, to move out by noon on Sunday, March 22.

A protocol is in place for move out:

  • As students move out of residence, we ask that students and guardians carefully follow social distancing guidelines. Please maintain a space of 2 meters between yourself and others, including our facilities and desk staff. We request that you limit the number of people that come to assist you to just one and bring your own move out cart if you are able. 
  • In line with social distancing best practices, there will be no food services available for the public over the weekend of March 21-22 and elevators will either have restricted access, or be shut down. Free vitamin water will be provided. If you require the use of an elevator for accessibility reasons, please contact the Victoria Hall front desk at 613-533-2531.    
  • If you are moving out over the weekend between 8:30am-4:30pm, there will be temporary key drop stations set up on Tindall Field during the day for main campus residences, which will further support the social distancing protocols. If you are moving out before 8:30 am or after 4:30 pm, you may bring your keys to the Victoria Hall desk. For residents of Jean Royce Hall (on West Campus), keys can be returned at JRH desk all weekend.
  • Staff will be on site to help direct traffic and answer questions.
  • The Residence Life team has been guided by experts in Public Health in the planning of our move out protocols. The above measures are in place to mitigate risk, while ensuring that we can complete the move-out process in a timely manner. Social distancing measures will also help ensure the safety of students who are unable to leave residence at this time, and so that some buildings can be readied for other uses, should KFLA Public Health require them.
