The University of Windsor has made some temporary adjustments to the winter semester.

The University will be extending its closure over the holidays until Wednesday, January 5th, 2022. Employees who can do so are being asked to work fully remotely as of January 5th, recognizing that some employees are required to be on campus to support operations and student-facing services.

Classes for the Winter term will now begin on January 17th, 2022, and will initially be held virtually. Undergraduate classes in Education and Nursing will begin on January 3rd, 2022, as previously planned to accommodate practicum and clinical rotations but will also be held virtually as much as possible.

On-campus classes, activities, and work for students, faculty, and staff in the Winter term will resume as soon as it is possible to do so with at least two weeks’ notice regarding the return to campus. The earliest date for a return would be January 31st, 2022.

“Although these adjustments are temporary, we know they will be important for the health and safety of our campus community. We also know that vaccination is one of our best defences against the impact of COVID-19 and helps to protect our health care system. A slightly delayed and virtual start to our Winter term will provide the opportunity for UWindsor community members to get their third vaccines as soon as possible before physically returning to campus,” a statement from the university said.
