December 23, 2021 - Winter Term to start on January 10. The provincial government decided to postpone the winter return of K-12 students until Monday, January 10 to allow public health officials more time to assess the risk of the variant and determine other changes that may be needed. In light of this decision, UWinnipeg will postpone the start of our winter term until January 10. Classes that would have occurred on January 6 and 7 are cancelled but may be made up at a later date.

Gradual reopening campus: vaccination and masks required

The UWinnipeg campus will remain closed to the public for the 2021 Fall Term and the 2022 Winter Term. Students, faculty members, and staff who are authorized to be on site will enter via controlled access points. All must show proof of full vaccination or attest to becoming fully vaccinated and provide proof within a specified timeframe.

If you are working or studying on campus, please see the Campus Access Process for direction on how to access the University.

Undergraduate students who choose not to be fully vaccinated and wish to change their class schedules can contact Academic Advising to investigate available remote learning alternatives; graduate students can contact their Graduate Program Chair.

In addition to the vaccination mandate, UWinnipeg’s robust return-to-campus safety plan includes other key measures such as mandatory masking, enhanced cleaning, and an upgraded ventilation system.

Getting two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine is the surest way of speeding our return to normalcy. Visit to book your first or second dose appointment, get answers to commonly asked questions, sign up for your immunization card, and view other resources. 

We encourage the entire UWinnipeg community to use the #Back2gether hashtag to share our messages and keep up to date with our campaign. Campaign graphics for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are also available for download on the UWinnipeg Flickr.
