We are excited to announce that The University of Winnipeg will resume in-person instruction for the 2021-22 academic year. Our upcoming Fall Term marks the launch of a phased return to the full UWinnipeg experience — with on-campus classes and labs, face-to-face student services, and a gradual increase in extra-curricular programming.
The 2021 Fall Term timetable will be posted to our website on Tuesday, June 15 and course registration will open on Monday, July 5. UWinnipeg students will receive an email with their registration appointments later this week.
Vaccination is our best protection from falling ill to COVID-19 and the surest path to a safe and successful 2021-22 academic year — in person.
More than 35 per cent of UWinnipeg classes will be taught in person beginning in September and the majority of Winter Term course instruction will be in the classroom. Remote learning alternatives will also be available for those who prefer that mode of delivery. Updates to our timetable will be ongoing for the next few weeks, so students are encouraged to check regularly for changes and additions.
With vaccination rates rising and the pandemic’s third wave receding, we anticipate a back-to-school experience that looks and feels much more open and ‘normal.’
The safety of students, faculty and staff is top of mind as we navigate this transition. All reopened campus activities, including classroom instruction, will follow the province’s public health guidelines. UWinnipeg operations teams have implemented protocols to ensure all campus buildings meet ventilation and cleaning standards for a safe reopening.
We are working with Manitoba Shared Health to meet safety requirements and will release those in advance, so students, faculty, and staff know what to expect. Between now and September, evolving details regarding topics such as on-campus mask usage, social distancing, and other restrictions will be updated regularly on our website.
The most important factor determining our back-to-school plan is vaccine uptake. If you have not already made an appointment to be vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so. Vaccination is our best protection from falling ill to COVID-19 and the surest path to a safe and successful 2021-22 academic year — in person.
