Mandatory Vaccination Requirements for Guelph and Ridgetown Campuses and U of G-managed Facilities

In order to access U of G’s campuses and University-managed facilities (including at the Guelph and Ridgetown campuses and our research facilities), faculty, staff and students must:

  • Submit proof of vaccination against COVID-19, or
  • Receive an approved exemption request.

All visitors over the age of 12 must be vaccinated against COVID-19 to access U of G campuses and managed-facilities. The University of Guelph’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy is in effect until Sept. 7, 2022. Full vaccination will be required for those coming to our campuses and facilities in the winter semester.

Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

The following information applies to the Guelph and Ridgetown campuses and U of G-managed research stations. Students and staff at the University of Guelph-Humber must follow U of GH’s vaccination policy.

Questions about U of G’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy can be directed to r2w@uoguelph.ca.

On Aug. 30, 2021, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health announced that as of Sept. 7, 2021 all post-secondary institutions are required to implement a vaccination policy that includes proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or receipt of an approved exemption.

Being fully vaccinated significantly reduces the risk of the most serious outcomes of COVID-19. Requiring faculty, staff and students to submit their proof of vaccination helps us ensure we are providing safe working and learning spaces for everyone. 


Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has continued to monitor and respond to new information – including government and public health directives
and discussions with public health experts, other universities and our U of G community. With emerging information about the Delta variant and modeling showing that we have entered a fourth wave of COVID-19, we refined our vaccination requirements.

Faculty, staff and students should submit proof of vaccination through U of G’s Vaccination Proof and Exemption System. Learn more on our Proof of Vaccination and Exemption Requests page

Visitors, volunteers and contractors should attest to their vaccination status through the U of G COVID-19 Daily Screening Form.

The University will use this information to reinforce existing public health measures and our own efforts to keep our community safe. Read more on our terms and conditions page.

Each request for an exemption is reviewed individually.

Based on advice from medical experts, medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccines are rare. The Ontario Medical Association has provided the following guidance for physicians:

“The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), the Ministry of Health, and some public health units have provided guidance regarding contraindications for COVID-19 vaccines. The Ministry of Health has also provided guidance for specific allergy populations in the COVID-19 Vaccination: Allergy Form document.

Generally speaking, there are very few acceptable medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccination (e.g., an allergist/immunologist-confirmed severe allergy or anaphylactic reaction to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or to any of its components that cannot be mitigated; a diagnosed episode of myocarditis/pericarditis after receipt of an mRNA vaccine).

Given the rarity of these exceptions, and in light of the fact that vaccines have been proven to be both safe and effective, any notes written for patients who qualify for a medical exemption need to clearly specify:

    • the reason they cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19 (i.e., document clear medical information that supports the exemption); and
    • the effective time period for the medical reason (i.e., permanent or time-limited).

While physicians are generally required to complete third party medical reports for patients when requested, the circumstances of the pandemic support physicians declining to write notes or complete forms when the patient making the request does not have a medical condition that warrants an exemption. If you find yourself in this situation, clearly and sensitively explain to your patient that you cannot provide them with a note or form, along with the reasons why.” 

Individuals who do not receive an exemption must comply with the University’s mandatory vaccination requirement to access University locations. Individuals can also explore options related to remote learning and working, as available.

Students who are not eligible to come for in-person classes should consult with their program counsellor regarding available options for remote learning. Students should consider that not all in-person courses will be available remotely and progress toward degree completion may be affected if they are unable to attend in-person classes. Students who are not vaccinated but who are enrolled in courses with a mandatory in-person learning requirement must drop these courses.

Employees who are required to perform their job duties on-site at University locations based on operational plans or the nature of the work should speak with their manager or supervisor to discuss their specific situation.

Post-secondary institutions have been advised that full vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all individuals involved in any in-person activities on campus (students, staff, faculty, contractors and visitors), with the rare exception of those individuals who cannot be vaccinated due to permitted exemptions (medical and other protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code). If you have applied for and been denied an exemption, then you must comply with the mandatory vaccination requirements if you wish to come in-person to University locations.

Vaccination Requirements for Students Living in Residence

Yes. As part of our ongoing health and safety efforts and in alignment with universities across Ontario, U of G will require students living in our Guelph campus residences in 2021-22 to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This measure has been recommended by Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health as well as other public health units in the region and province.

Students in residence live closely with many others. By ensuring students in our residences are vaccinated, we can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and create a safer space for everyone.

All students planning to live on campus must be fully vaccinated within 30 days of checking into residence.

Students who arrive on campus after having received only one dose must arrange for a second dose as soon as possible after their arrival.

Students who arrive at the Guelph campus residences and are not vaccinated must receive a first dose within seven days of arrival and make arrangements to receive a second dose within 30 days of their move-in date.

Student Health Services will help facilitate on-campus vaccination for students who need it.

Vaccinations are available from local public health units, many pharmacies and on campus through Student Health Services. No matter where they currently live, U of G students can receive a COVID-19 vaccination at WDG Public Health clinics.
