Building Access for all Campuses

Due to the unprecedented emergency situation that has resulted in the declaration of a Public Health Emergency in Newfoundland and Labrador, Memorial University is enacting further measures related to buildings access on all our campuses to enhance social distancing and keep our community safe. By ensuring we are aware of who is on campus, we are better able to protect the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students who must come to campus.

These measures align with public health guidance. The details of how these measures will happen are outlined below, and have been approved by the president, provost, and vice-presidents.

Your cooperation is required to ensure we are doing everything possible to protect our community and slow the spread of COVID-19. Thank you in advance and please see below for the details of how these measures will be implemented.

  • Dr. Vianne Timmons, president and vice-chancellor
  • Dr. Noreen Golfman, provost and vice-president (academic)

Beginning Tuesday, April 21, Memorial is implementing further building access controls. These enhance social distancing, continue to reduce foot traffic at our facilities and reduce the demand on custodial and other resources. For more information, visit
