Authorized on-campus classes and work to resume Tuesday, Nov. 10

Students, staff, and faculty who are currently authorized to work or study on campus will be able to resume on campus activities on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at the Saskatoon, Prince Albert, and Regina locations.

This resumption of activity (Including in-person classes) is only applicable to those individuals who are authorized to be on campus and were affected by the closure due to this weekend’s winter storm. All other university buildings are closed due to COVID-19 and will remain closed until further notice.

While USask crews have been working around the clock to ensure campus is safe, there is still much snow removal and winter preparation work to be done. Priority roads are open, and parking lots will be open as best as possible. Work continues overnight with walkways currently underway. Anyone coming onto campus needs to exercise caution while driving and walking on campus. Conditions are not optimal at this point and vehicles and pedestrians should pay extra attention for icy patches, especially at crosswalks. When exiting buildings spread sand and use handrails where available. 

As city crews continue to clear streets over the next few days, please consider your route when commuting to campus and stay up to date with any changes to your local city transit. 

Thank you to all members of the USask community who worked to keep everyone safe through snow removal and other key activities that maintain critical infrastructure essential to university operations. 

Check your PAWS email, USask Twitter and Facebook accounts, or usask.ca for notification of any changes. 

Note that there will be no on-campus library services on Nov. 10. The University Library's on-location services, including contactless pick up and bookings for studying at the Murray Library, will be unavailable.

Ask Us chat remains available for research and library questions at library.usask.ca/askus.
