Update: Locker and Campus Access

Students are allowed to continue to come to the Notre Dame and Exchange District campuses to clean out their lockers, and retrieve any personal items they may still have at the College. Students can attend between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday to Friday. Once your belongings have been retrieved, and your locker is cleaned out, students must leave the campus immediately. Please leave the locker and lock open when you leave.

If you have a locker that is expiring but are not comfortable coming to the College at this time, your belongings will remain in the locker. Once restrictions are lifted you will be able to retrieve your belongings.

Students in trades programs who need to pick up tools, PPE, and other personal effects from shops and labs should email their instructor or coordinator to organize a pick-up time.

More information about accessing our all of our campuses, along with information to advise RRC Security when you’ve arrived on-campus, can be found here.
