On-campus operations and maintenance continuity
There have been some questions about campus operations and maintenance continuity during the university closures due to COVID-19.
The University has reopened, but some buildings require card access and are still operating with basic essential services only.
Please note that Operations and Maintenance cannot respond to requests for building access. See information about UM buildings access and hours (PDF).
For all other issues or inquiries about overall university operations during this time, please visit the UM COVID-19 website.
Will mail services be provided to campus?
Since the University of Manitoba’s closing on March 16, 2020, Central Stores and Mail Services has continued to receive all Mail, Parcels and Packages addressed to the University of Manitoba’s various departments. Parcels, and packages will be held in the Stores Building at 79 Freedman Crescent for both UM campuses.
