Residence COVID-19 Information

Mount Royal University continues to follow guidelines issued by campus leadership and the provincial and municipal governments. Please see below for the latest updates to our mask and guest policies. 


In alignment with provincial government protocols, masks are no longer required on campus, however, MRU strongly recommends you continue to wear a mask as an additional layer of protection. 

Guest Policy

Residents may have other residents and external guests visit them within the parameters of our guest policy. Please note that our guest policy may change at any time in response to changes in provincial, municipal or campus health measures.

Residents are responsible for their external guests’ behaviours, including their commitment to keeping our community safe from COVID-19. This means external guests must comply with all campus measures in place at any given time.

It is your responsibility as a resident to ensure any guests you invite to campus are aware of, and follow any measures in place at the time of their visit.. Guests who cannot or will not comply with measures in place will be required to leave campus immediately and their host will be subject to consequences under the residence conduct process and could result in sanctions including (but not limited to) loss of guest privileges, reassignment to another unit or eviction.

Reporting test results and symptoms

Students that test positive and/or are presenting core COVID-19 symptoms (fever, new onset of cough or worsening of chronic cough, new or worsening shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, runny nose, loss of sense of smell or taste) are strongly encouraged to contact Residence Services immediately.

Student Residents can update their Health Status on the Residence Portal. Updating your Health Status will inform our ResLife team of your condition.

Symptomatic students and those who test positive for COVID-19 are strongly encouraged to temporarily move units to help minimize the spread of the virus to other areas within Residence.Residence Services has dedicated rooms to allow for symptomatic isolation as needed. Isolation units are also available for roommates of symptomatic students if they choose to stay elsewhere temporarily. 

Arrangements will be made to ensure students are receiving the necessary resources and support during this time. MRU will provide contact information for academic support as well.  


Public health requirements may change if there is an increase in local transmission rates. Provincial regulations and municipal bylaws will inform the COVID-19 measures that Mount Royal puts in place in the fall and these will be communicated in advance.

More information on isolation and quarantine can be found through Alberta Health Services.: 


If you haven’t done so yet, please consider getting a booster for added protection.Learn more.  

Thank you and please contact Residence Services if you have any questions.For more information on campus protocols, please visit MRU's COVID-19 information page.
