February 15, 2021 - 5:45pm

Monday, February 15, 2021, 6 pm update: Vancouver Island University’s Nanaimo campus, Cowichan campus and Trades Centre, Powell River campus, Parksville/Qualicum Centre, G.R. Paine Horticultural Centre, Milner Gardens and Woodland and Deep Bay Marine Field Station will RESUME REGULAR BUSINESS/TEACHING ACTIVITIES on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.

All locations that are open will remain open unless otherwise notified.

For more information on what happens when it snows, visit VIU’s Severe Weather Procedures page.

While most students are currently learning remotely, there are some students with face-to-face classes. 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.
