The SLC will remain closed to general bookings for the duration of the stay at home order, now in place until March 8th. The SLC will only be available to those in extenuating circumstances who can attest to their essential need to study on campus.
Should you have exceptional and essential needs, please email email@example.com and a staff member will forward you a google form. This google form will act as your official attestation of need where you will be asked to:
- Indicate why you require space due to challenges due to your home environment
- Indicate why you require access to wi-fi or other technology;
- Indicate whether you would like to be connected to other student support;
- Complete an attestation indicating that campus access is critical to meeting your academic goals, and that you understand the risks of campus access at this time.
Your attestation of need will then be reviewed within two business days and a staff member will be in touch with you about options for laptop and wifi-hotspot support for at-home study or to arrange an on-campus study space at the SLC if needed.
A reminder that currently the province of Ontario is operating under a ‘Stay at Home’ directive, requesting citizens to leave their homes only when absolutely necessary.
We will continue to assess the SLC’s ability to offer space safely and in line with Toronto Public Health.

If your access request has been approved and accommodations are made for to study at the SLC, all COVID-19 guidelines apply.
Masks must be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth, while inside the SLC. This is the best way to keep our community safe. An individual may temporarily and briefly remove a mask or face covering when necessary to take a bite of food or a sip of a drink. We ask that between bites and sips you replace your mask, keeping your mask on whenever possible. If you don’t have a mask we will provide you with one.
Personal belongings must be kept to your reserved study space and should not spill over to adjacent desks. This is to ensure effective contact tracing and cleaning.
If you are able to wear a mask and choose not to, or if you choose to ignore social distancing, here is what to expect:
An SLC staff member will talk with you and remind you of our guidelines.
If our staff again see that you are not seated in your assigned seating or are not wearing a mask, you will be reminded a second time.
A third time will result in being asked to leave the SLC for the remainder of the day.
You can continue to book at the SLC, however if you continue to choose not to comply we may have to remove your booking privileges in the future. We can only operate if we all do our part.
Any students who are permitted to be on campus will be required must arrive at the SLC with your OneCard, be prepared to show your reservation email confirmation, and review and sign an updated consent waiver at check-in.
