Book A Desk

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise at an alarming rate, a declaration of emergency and provincewide Stay-at-Home order are in effect.

The SLC will be fully closing as of May 1st to any and all bookings. We will remain fully closed while the Stay-at-Home order is in effect, and assess if and how we can reopen safely when it is lifted.

Stay tuned for updates here and on our Instagram @ryersonslc, we will provide more information as we have it.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate this complex time.

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. 

This is in alignment with Ryerson’s Mask Policy and the City of Toronto Bylaw.

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.
