Research Spaces

U of G’s COVID-19 safety measures and practices apply in all research spaces. Learn more on the Research during COVID-19 page.


All centrally booked classrooms in use at U of G have ventilation measures in place that provide for the equivalent of six air changes per hour (ACH). Air movement and air purifiers allow these spaces to reach this ventilation target – a measure equal to the standard in place for medical examination rooms.  A summary of the measurement and assessment results for these classrooms can be found on the Physical Resources website. 

U of G is adjusting mechanical systems to ensure they continue running at high-quality standards. We are maximizing the flow of outside air into all campus buildings and are purging the air in buildings at the start and end of the day.


U of G’s residences are a home away from home for many of our students and an important aspect of community. Visit the Student Housing website for guidelines on living in residence during COVID-19.
