Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021: VIU Nanaimo campus will reopen for afternoon classes and exams

December 18, 2021 - 10:15am

Saturday, December 18, 2021: VIU's Nanaimo campus will reopen at 12 pm for afternoon classes and exams. Our crews are making excellent progress in removing snow and ice. However, some slippery patches remain. Please use caution travelling to and around the campus.

We know our region has many micro-climates and accumulation can vary dramatically. If you are unable to report to work or will be late to work because of inclement weather conditions and/or you have dependents affected by school or day care closures and alternative arrangements cannot be made, please contact your manager/department lead. We encourage you to use your discretion and work with your manager to make alternate work arrangements. People with mobility challenges or known medical conditions that may be exacerbated by a fall due to slippery conditions/weather conditions on campus may wish to evaluate their individual circumstance with their manager prior to coming to campus. 
If you are unable to work from home, normally you have the option of either: 
  • Taking a vacation day. 
  • Making up the time.  
  • Using lieu time (where applicable). 
  • Taking leave without pay.      
We know our region has many micro-climates and snow accumulation can vary dramatically. Students are asked to use their best judgment when deciding if they are able to come in if the campus is open. If they are not able to come in, students are asked to let their instructors know and accommodations will be made for missed work and exams.
