Information for Employees

Access to Individual Faculty Offices

As of August 11, 2020, restricted access to individual faculty offices is permitted in certain buildings. Faculty members may request access to their offices by e-mailing their Dean, who will complete all notifications as required through the COVID Portal. It is understood that a faculty member choosing to return to campus for the use of their office is on a voluntary basis. Please visit the Access to Individual Faculty Offices webpage for more information.

Classroom Studio Recording Requests

Carleton Online (formerly CUOL) Technical Operators are able to provide assistance in helping record lectures in one of the studio classrooms. Course instructors can record their course introduction, update a lecture or two, or even record entire lectures. Please complete the classroom studio recording request form.

Seeking Temporary Visit to Buildings to Obtain/Retrieve Materials

The Essential Services Order specifically allows temporary access to obtain or retrieve materials necessary for the organization to operate remotely. This includes temporarily accessing your office to collect books and materials that will assist in teaching. Individuals working remotely should only come to campus for these limited purposes. These access requests can be directed to Campus Safety Services (CSS) with a copy to your Supervisor. In all instances, you will need the approval of your Supervisor and to inform Campus Safety Services to visit your office to obtain or retrieve materials.

Seeking Temporary Use of Space in Buildings for Work That Cannot be Done Remotely

The Essential Services Order specifically allows for temporary access to facilities, even for activities not listed as essential, for certain limited purposes including maintenance, security, and critical matters that cannot be attended to remotely. In all instances, you will need the approval of your Supervisor

For your safety, if you are coming onto campus and have approval from your Supervisor to work, please remember to:

Accessing the Tunnels

Access to the tunnels has been restricted to authorized individuals only and those with approval to use the tunnels for accessibility purposes. Please avoid using the tunnels at all times.

Access requests should be directed to your supervisor/Dean as part of your approval to be on campus. The supervisor/Dean will submit your tunnel access approval to covidinfo@carleton.ca.

Resumption of Research Activities

Resumption of on-campus research activities that cannot be done remotely, will need to be progressive in order to be compatible with provincial, health authorities, and municipal policies and guidelines and relevant Carleton policies and procedures.

As of May 15, 2020 the approval of the relevant Dean is required to resume research activities on campus as set out in the Principles and Procedures document (PDF, 133 KB). No research activity that can be carried out remotely will be approved to be carried out on campus.
