Campus Reopening – A Phased Approach

By Tyndale Communications  /  Wednesday, July 22, 2020

Last Updated: August 25, 2022

 Tyndale is currently in Phase: E

Tyndale University's Campus Reopening & Student Experiences Task Force, has developed and implemented a phased reopening plan of the campus. At each phase, increased access to on-campus services are provided through the summer and into the fall, while full virtual services continue to be available in each phase.

Throughout the process of developing the plan, Tyndale University continues to rely on three guiding principles as a framework in making decisions: health and safety of students, faculty and staff; academic excellence; and the unique Tyndale experience.

Those who need to access the campus, according to the activities permitted within the phased framework, will find safety procedures and protocol in place that must be adhered to.

The Task Force continues its work to plan for the student experiences that make a Tyndale education unique. Additional announcements will be made in the coming weeks as we look to fully open the campus. For questions you may have which are not answered below, please refer to the FAQs for additional information.


Note: Each phase expands the activities of the previous phase.
