Holiday break extension – Winter 2021 starts January 11, 2021

Dear students,

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the colleges are committed to continuing our work as a vibrant centre of intellectual life while ensuring the safety of our students, faculty, staff and community.

As we head towards the end of 2020, we are pleased to announce that, in line with the University of British Columbia, we will be delaying the start of classes for the Winter 2021 term to January 11, 2021.

The pandemic has impacted everyone in a variety of ways. Students have expressed they are experiencing new challenges this semester, in all facets of their lives. The hope is that by allowing a delayed start to classes, we can help our students, faculty and staff to better prepare for Winter Semester and allow them to enjoy a well-deserved break.
