Study Spaces on Campus

Safety Precautions

York University has instituted a number of measures to keep students safe on campus this fall, guided by public health guidelines and the government. The on-campus study spaces:

  • are limited in number;
  • will be clearly identified as study spaces through directional and door signage;
  • will be cleaned throughout the day, with a focus on high-touch areas;
  • will be cleaned thoroughly each night by York Facilities staff;
  • will have washrooms and hand hygiene stations in close proximity);
  • will have furniture arranged to allow for physical distancing;
  • will be monitored by York security to ensure student safety; and,
  • may have a sign-in process to assist Toronto Public Health in the event they need to conduct contact tracing.

Book your study space at the Library and prepare for your visit
