Phased Return to Campus

Essential University Functions

Return to campus request process

Units wishing to return to campus before on-campus activities are authorized to resume should first consider the Principles for decision-making during the COVID-19 pandemic.  If access is still deemed appropriate and necessary: 

  1. Unit completes the Request to Resume On-Campus Activities Form (DOC, 73 KB) which collects necessary information to review opening plans.  
    • For units reporting to the Provost, forms must be approved and submitted by the Dean, Vice-Provost, or Deputy Provost or delegate. 
    • For all other units, forms must be approved and submitted by the applicable Vice-Principal or delegate.
    • Applications must be submitted at least 10 business days in advance of the reopening.
       
  2. Form is submitted to campus.restart@queensu.ca
     
  3. Proposals will be approved by the Academic Operations Group (AOG) and/or the Senior Leadership Team (SLT)
     
  4. After approval by AOG and/or SLT: 
    • Building capacity subgroup to map building capacity (if / as applicable)
    •  Guidelines/Health and Safety subgroup to review health and safety aspects of the plan and provide feedback to the submitting unit as required.
      • EH&S will liaise with David Walker/Heather Cole if public health input is required.  This should be limited because protocol information is publicly available.  
      • Campus Operations Group (COG) to be notified of proposals under review, and proposals approved.
