Ucheck Self Assessment

The University of Toronto is launching a new tool to support the health & safety of our community as we gradually return to campus this fall.

The UCheck web portal will allow faculty, librarians, staff, and students to generate a COVID-19 risk status by completing a quick and thorough self-assessment that is unique to U of T. This risk status will inform whether an individual should visit campus in person or not and will allow the University to better manage our workforce and student population as we move into the fall.
