Carleton University suspended its vaccination requirements for participation in Carleton activities beginning May 1, 2022.

As of Saturday June 25 MASKS were no longer be mandatory, however we continue to strongly recommend masking when indoors, particularly if physical distancing cannot be maintained. We are aware that personal preferences regarding optional mask use will vary greatly, and we ask that we all show consideration and care for each other during this transition.

Please note that if pandemic circumstances change, the university may need to reinstate the mask requirement, daily screenings & vaccination policies. The University continues to monitor the situation and will align with evolving public health advice/government requirements.



Registration by phone or in person is on available during our hours of operation. Register online 24/7. To register in person, visit our Welcome Centre in the Alumni Hall.
