COVID-19 Gryphon Athletics Closures, Cancellations, Credits and Refunds

April 1, 2021 – Guelph, Ont. - The University of Guelph, Department of Athletics will be closed effective end of day Friday April 2, as Ontario has implemented a province-wide emergency brake shut down, effective Saturday April 3 at 12:01am. Following government directives all regular programming will close as of Friday, April 2 at 4pm while permits and rentals will continue until the close of regular business hours on Friday April 2. All external business will be cancelled until further notice. For the Department of Athletics, this includes registered programs, fitness memberships and facility rentals.

The Province of Ontario will monitor and evaluate the impacts of the public health measures throughout the next four weeks to determine if it is safe to lift any restrictions or if they need to be extended.

The information below provides you with details regarding credits and refunds for canceled rentals, programs and memberships. Please note this information is subject to change as the situation evolves.
