As of August 29, 2022, the decision whether to wear a face mask is now a personal responsibility at Aurora College; masks will continue to be made available at all facility entrances for those who choose to wear them. Out of courtesy for others within the Aurora College community, we ask that you continue to follow recommended best practices, including regular hand washing, employing healthy respiratory practices and staying home if you feel ill.

We will continue to review and amend our processes as required to support the health and safety of our students, employees and communities and share any changes or new information through Aurora College email and website.


2021-2022 Academic Year

We are pleased that most of our 2021-2022 programming will be delivered face to face at all of our locations. In addition, we will continue to enhance and expand the number and types of programs offered through distance learning. Our Campuses and CLCs will continue to follow COVID-19 protocols, which include physical distancing, enhanced cleaning, and the use of non-medical masks and hand sanitizer. Our new mandatory student vaccination policy will take effect on March 1, 2022. Refer to our FAQ document for more information. 

Currently, non-medical masks are required in all indoor spaces in the NWT, which includes our campuses, Community Learning Centres, and other facilities. Physical distancing of two metres (six feet) is required wherever possible.

Student housing is open and available as usual. Common areas in shared accommodations will be subject to enhanced cleaning protocols.
