What is the U of G Community Census?


Help build a better University for everyone: complete the U of G Community Census! The University of Guelph Community Census is a key commitment outlined in the University’s Anti-Racism Action Plan. The information is collected from students, faculty and staff to obtain a more robust picture of our institution’s unique diversity.

  • Emergency Planning Survey

  • The University of Guelph is concerned with the safety of its employees. Toward that end, individualized emergency evacuation plans for persons with disabilities may be required. If you or one of your employees requires emergency planning information, assistance or instruction, please complete the Emergency Planning Survey. 

  • Snow Removal Survey

  • The University's Physical Resources division endeavours to ensure safe and easy access to University facilities during winter. Every year Physical Resources deploys its staff to remove snow and clear doorways, pathways, steps, ramps and curb cuts so that all employees have access to University buildings. It is of vital importance that the needs of employees with disabilities are not overlooked.
