Other Ontario universities are implementing the same rules.
Ryerson University is now requiring all students living in residence during its 2021-2022 school year to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the university, the requirement, which is supported by public health authorities, will help the school provide a "safe residence experience" for incoming students during the pandemic.
"This requirement is specific to students in residence because of the nature of communal living, the high volume of cases and incidence rates among young populations, and to foster a welcoming and engaging community for students on our campus," a spokesperson for Ryerson told Narcity.
All students living on-campus will be required to get at their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before their move-in date.
