Western announces phased approach to return-to-class

Western is adopting a phased approach to the return to in-person learning, a precautionary move to ensure the health and safety of the campus community.

Beginning Jan. 31, all second-, third- and fourth-year undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as second-entry professional programs, will resume in person. This is the date the university originally planned to be in person.

All first-year undergraduate-level courses will resume in person on Feb. 28. As most first-year students are living in residence, the decision to delay their return was made to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in residences where there are more shared spaces and washrooms.
