We are pleased to share that as part of our incremental return to full campus activity, the majority of Winter 2022 classes across the institution will be face-to-face or have a face-to-face component as we aim to increase class and teaching space capacity.
Many teaching and research labs will also have increased capacity, up to maximum fire code capacity, or 50 students, whichever is less.
The robust campus health and safety protocols will remain in place, including mask wearing and the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy which will also remain in effect through the Winter 2022 semester.
Registration dates for the Winter term will be in November and announced soon.
Vaccination Attestation Reminder
The attestation form includes provisions to state vaccination status and intention to return to campus or not at all.
Consequences of Non-Compliance
The University reserves the right to take action with respect to any individual who breaches the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, including any individual who submits false information to the University under the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, or otherwise fails to comply with the University’s vaccination requirements, including attestation.
Faculty and staff who have not completed the vaccination attestation requirement or are otherwise not adhering to the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy as of October 7, 2021, regardless of whether they are currently working on campus or not, will be deemed to have made themselves unavailable for work, will not be permitted to access campus, and may be placed on an unpaid leave of absence.
Students who have not completed the vaccination attestation requirement or are otherwise not adhering to the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy as of October 7, 2021, regardless of where or how they are currently studying, will not be permitted to access campus, and will not be able to enroll in any face-to-face classes or labs for Winter 2022.
Where can I get vaccinated?
On-campus pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be held this Thursday and Friday, October 7 and 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Faculty of Education Parking Lot. The clinics are open to anyone 12+ for 1st or 2nd doses. These clinics are barrier-free: no appointment or health card is required.
Vaccines also remain readily available through the mass vaccination clinic at Devonshire Mall (wevax.ca), participating pharmacies, and by appointment at Student Health Services.
