UTM closes its buildings and restricts access to limit spread of COVID-19


The University of Toronto - Mississauga (UTM) campus has closed buildings to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

According to a recent post on the campus's website, UTM buildings are now closed to students and the general public.

The move was made after Premier Doug Ford declared a State of Emergency and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asked that all Canadians stay home whenever possible. 

According to the post, all classrooms, labs and exterior building entrances will be locked.

The post says The Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre will be open for limited weekday hours to students, staff and faculty for computer use. Users of the library must present a TCard when they arrive. 

According to the post, the only open entrance to the library will be the Starbucks entrance.

Students will not have access to other campus facilities.

Those in Residence who cannot return home due to travel restrictions or other obligations can request to remain in residences and will be able to access Colman Commons Dining Hall.
