Your guide to Fall 2020 at U of T

Where to pick up your U of T face mask

As we work towards a gradual and safe return to our campuses, the University of Toronto is offering every student, faculty member, staff member and librarian two free non-medical cloth face masks.  

Non-medical masks or face coverings must now be worn indoors in all common-use spaces on University property.

Distribution of these masks will begin August 24 and will continue throughout the academic year. Check back regularly for an updated list of pick-up locations.

Please note that you do not need to arrange a special visit to campus to pick up your masks, as one pair has been assigned to you and it will be available whenever you return to campus.


For students

Are you a student? Here’s how and where to pick up your masks. You will be asked to provide your UTORid at the pick-up location.
