Welcome Back – Fall 2021

Student Housing

Fall 2021 (Updated August 24th, 2021) 

Student Housing will be fully open for the Fall 2021 semester. We are looking forward to returning to a sense of normalcy and welcoming our students back to campus.  


Students applying to live on campus for Fall 2021 will do so risk-free: confirmation deposits and cancellation fees will be eliminated for the Fall semester in order to allow for students to change their plans if the COVID-19 situation at the time requires it.

Isolation Protocols (Fall 2021) 

Please note that, currently, any student travelling to the province must abide by isolation protocols set out by federal and provincial governments. Canadian students are asked to refer to both the provincial COVID-19 site and the Memorial University COVID-19 hub in order to ensure that you are abiding by the proper isolation protocols once you arrive in the province.

All students are asked to connect with the Internationalization office regarding travelling to the province for the Fall 2021 semester. It is the responsibility of the student to have an isolation plan in place. 


Self-isolation on campus will be available to those students who are accepted into Student Housing for the Fall 2021 semester. Students must self-isolate at least two weeks prior to the scheduled move in date for the Fall 2021 semester.  All students who are required to self-isolate must visit Memorial University’s International Student webpage and apply for self-isolation for Fall 2021.  

If you have NOT been accepted into Student Housing for the Fall 2021 semester, you will likely NOT be able to self-isolate on campus. We suggest that you seek your own self-isolation accommodations. We can share information about the approved accommodations or you can find your accommodations for self-isolation. Once you apply for self-isolation with the Internationalization Office, a staff person will be in contact with you to let you know when to book travel and/or provide information. 

Mask Wearing

Non-medical masks will be mandatory beginning on August 23 for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. These must be worn in public spaces and common areas or any time a two-meter physical distance cannot be maintained. This applies in classrooms and laboratories, while at university facilities or while conducting Memorial business off-campus. Exceptions to the mask requirement may be made for medical, trauma-based, religious and cultural grounds. More information is forthcoming about the process for exceptions.  

Mandatory Vaccines

Students, faculty, staff and visitors will require the first dose of an approved vaccination by September 7, 2021, and the second dose by October 15, 2021, unless granted an accommodation. Recognized vaccines include those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and/or Health Canada. More information will be shared soon on the process by which Memorial will be requesting vaccination information.

The accommodation process for vaccine exemption is being finalized and will be communicated as soon as possible. 

Please visit Memorial University’s COVID-19 Information Hub for further information and updates.
