Return to Campus Information for Event Planners

Simon Fraser University continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and we are committed to protecting our students, faculty, staff and community. Following the public health orders and guidelines for the Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health regions, SFU will be returning to campus in the fall. Check the current Campus Status on SFU's four-stage Campus Recovery Plan.

The most recent information on SFU's return to campus plans can be found on the Return to Campus page. SFU has transitioned from unit-specific safety plans to one university-wide Communicable Disease Plan that includes core public health measures to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.

At this time, in-person gatherings are permitted with limited capacity and relevant safety precautions as outlined by the provincial government.

Note: A Safe Work Plan is required for in-person meetings and gatherings organized by Meeting, Event and Conference Services (MECS).

Please view our planning guidelines page for more information about online and in-person events and ceremonies.
