University of Regina to temporarily return to remote teaching and learning

Media Advisory Release Date: March 23, 2021 4:30 p.m.

In response to Regina’s heightened rates of COVID-19 infections, including cases involving variants of concern, and the Government of Saskatchewan's latest public health orders for Regina and area, the University of Regina will temporarily pause face-to-face delivery of classes.

Beginning Monday, March 29, classes that are currently being offered in-person will move to remote platforms and will return to face-to-face instruction on Monday, April 12 unless otherwise communicated.

Only a limited number of students have been participating in low-density, face-to-face course components on campus this semester.

Critical services continue on our campus and the campus will continue to accommodate students who may require access to wifi and individual study spaces. As part of the protocols currently in place, building access is monitored and entrance restrictions and existing operating hours remain in effect.

Our campus remains a safe place given the protocols and protective measures we have in place. This move to a temporary return to remote teaching and learning will help lessen the risk of transfer of the virus within our campus and the community.
