COVID-19: Updates and Information

To keep our students, employees and extended community safe and healthy and follow public health guidelines, Vancouver Island University will be following a hybrid model of educational delivery for fall 2020. This means that many courses will be completely online, or the amount of face-to-face learning has been greatly reduced.

Find the latest updates on VIU’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic on this website and more on our approach to the fall term.
