As we approach the fall term at Yorkville University with great anticipation, we also reflect back on what has been a meaningful and engaging educational experience for students over the past several months.
Although the current reality for on-campus students in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic was rather unexpected, the result continues to be an engaging remote learning experience that brings students from all over the world together in virtual classrooms.
At this time, we can confirm that both Yorkville University’s British Columbia and Ontario campuses will continue delivering classroom instruction via this remote learning environment into the fall term of study, which is scheduled to begin on Oct. 5, 2020. On-campus studies will not resume until public health, and the provinces in which we operate, deem it safe for us to return to campus.
That said, Yorkville University remains open, and our student services and academic supports are available online, as we continue to add new tools and resources to meet our students’ needs.
Yorkville University also remains mindful of the stress and anxiety these types of situations can bring on. Counselling services are available for those students who need them. Visit https://yorkvilleu-bc.janeapp.com/ to make an appointment.

Ontario students can also call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 to speak with a registered nurse, while B.C. students can talk to a HealthLinkBC nurse by calling 8-1-1.
