Application process for expanded access to the Lethbridge campus
Friday, June 12, 2020, 1:30 p.m.

This message contains important information about the process for expanded access to the Lethbridge campus.  At this time, access protocols to the Calgary Campus remain unchanged as we work with our BVC partners on questions of building access.

As the province moves ahead with its relaunch strategy, the University of Lethbridge is easing restrictions for access to its Lethbridge campus over the summer. We ask that faculty, staff and students who can work from home continue to do so in order to meet the government request that we limit in-person attendance of people on campus. At the same time, we understand that for some the need for campus access is becoming increasingly critical.

The process allows those who require access to equipment or facilities on the Lethbridge campus to apply for access if their work can be accomplished in line with the provincial guidelines for post-secondary institutions.
