COVID-19 Update - All on-campus classes suspended effective March 16, 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves around the world and in our local community, Conestoga continues to adjust plans based on the guidance provided by our local Public Health authority.

In an effort to limit the number of people on campus for the remainder of the semester, Conestoga is suspending in-person classes at all campus locations, effective Monday, March 16. Students will be contacted by course instructors during the week of March 16-20 with additional information regarding revised semester completion plans. 

Important notes:

  • Existing online courses will continue as originally scheduled.
  • Continung education (CE) activity is suspended for the week of March 16.
  • Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) programming is suspended until April 6.

At this time, all Conestoga campuses remain open and college operations will continue. Facilities such as the library, recreation centre, food services, registrar’s office and health services will remain open and available to students if required.

As the situation continues to evolve, further measures may be required to protect the safety and well-being of our college community. Check the Conestoga website for the most current information and updates before heading to campus.
