On-Campus Spaces for Online Learning

Response Level: Restricted

Community transmission of COVID-19 is occurring, but there is low risk at Red River College campuses.


We recognize that some students won’t be able to carry out their studies from home this fall, and may benefit from being on campus. Spaces at our Notre Dame Campus, Exchange District Campus, and some regional campuses have been designated for students who require a reliable high-speed internet connection, or need a dedicated space to study and/or learn online.

These spaces have been set up to allow students to maintain proper physical distancing.

Who can use these spaces?

  • All full-time and part-time students registered in a Red River College program
  • First come, first served – if a room is full, please go to another room nearby
