As we begin to plan for the eventual and phased return to campus – once government regulations allow and it is safe to do so – we will all need to ensure that our spaces are prepared and that members of our community have access to the items they need. In order to be ready ahead of time, you can now order these supplies through eShop in consultation with your manager or supervisor. Catalogues for essential cleaning products, personal care items, standard signage, and physical barriers are now available.

All members of the Carleton community can place orders for critical items through eShop as recommended in your departmental COVID-19 assessment. These items will be free-of-charge. Please be responsible in your approach to acquiring items and ensure your unit/department is coordinated in its requests. Please also note that the available items may be different than the normal supplies acquired in your unit/department, may be subject to limits on amounts and may change over time.

How to order

Placing your order for return to campus supplies through eShop is the same as shopping any of the existing hosted catalogues. Once you sign in, you will see a Safe Return to Campus showcase featuring supplies that are available to order – see the showcase image below for reference.

Please note that during this time we have implemented a disinfectant spray bottle program to ensure departments have easy access to disinfectant spray for cleaning and sanitizing work areas. These re-fillable spray bottles will come pre-filled with disinfectant. When your department needs to have the bottle refilled, simply place another order through eShop, and a filled bottle will be exchanged for the empty one you have on hand. By taking advantage of the disinfectant spray bottle program, not only are you guaranteed to receive the product in time, but you are also helping to protect our environment by reducing waste and reusing supplies.

When placing orders in eShop, please indicate your preferred date of delivery in the Delivery Options of the Shipping information section of your order. Orders will be delivered as close as possible to your requested delivery date, with weekly deliveries taking place every Tuesday and Thursday beginning July 7th. You do not need to be present in your office to receive the delivery.

Research Supplies

To order research-specific supplies, please place your order through the Science Stores catalogue, which is also found in the Return to Campus showcase. Supplies ordered through the Science Stores will be charged on a recovery basis. If the supplies you need to conduct your research are not available, please contact the Science Stores at to discuss your requirements. Additional information can be found at
