Spaces on campus

Keeping our UNB community safe is a shared responsibility. We will continue to follow the advice and guidance of New Brunswick Public Health.

Health and safety requirements

Workspaces, lecture theatres, classrooms and kitchenettes that remain open for use will have room-specific operational health and safety requirements:

  • Face masks are required.
  • Hand sanitizing or hand washing is recommended when entering or leaving the space, and before and after any location or activity change.
  • Shared equipment, devices and appliances should be sanitized before and after each use.
  • To ensure physical distancing, furniture is not to be moved or relocated in rooms.

Lecture theatres and classrooms

  • Sanitizing materials will be available in the spaces and are the responsibility of the building faculty.
  • Entry and exit will be through different doors unless the classroom only has one door in which entry and exiting will adhere to physical distancing when possible.
  • Personal protective equipment and plexiglass barriers installed in classrooms and offices will remain in place.
  • Do not move or relocate chairs within the room.


We will direct traffic through our buildings by using directional signage on doors, walls and floors. Always remember to look for markings denoting the traffic flow and follow these directions.

Directional patterns ensure movement within and between buildings and altering one space can impact others. To maintain the safety of students, faculty and staff, do not alter the directional signage in any way.
