Back to Campus for Fall 2022

To all FNUniv students,

We extend a warm welcome to our new and returning students to the First Nations University of Canada for the Fall 2022 term.

Last week, we provided an update on the campus safety measures. At FNUniv and our affiliated university & colleges, we continue to encourage and welcome masking on any of the three campus locations. Masks and hand sanitizer will be made available upon entering campus, in addition to every classroom, lab and library. 

Student Success Services offers many services. See below for further details. Should you wish to connect via email, please include your name, student number and whether you’re a new or returning student.

Unfortunately, we are still in a pandemic environment. Our priority is the health and safety of our students, Elders, faculty, and staff. If you are feeling unwell or have symptoms related to COVID-19, please stay home, self manage and advise the FNUniv Crisis Response Team immediately. If you require a COVID-19 test kit, please inquire at the Information Desk at your respective campus.

The University of Regina distributed an update to all UofR students on August 30th. If at any point throughout the Fall term, you may need an accommodation due to illness; please visit the UofR’s Registrar’s Office website under “Academic Regulations” and the Application for Deferral of Term Work and/or Final Exam and Self Declaration of Illness forms on the UofR’s Registrar’s Office website. FNUniv students must contact the FNUniv Registrar at registrar@firstnationsuniversity.ca 

The University will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate our safety measures as needed. 

We hope that you have a wonderful first-year or returning campus experience at the First Nations University of Canada. We are always here to help and support in any way possible.

Sincerely,

FNUniv Senior Management Team

Back to Campus for Fall 2022


What to Expect on Campus for the Fall 2022 Safety Measures

Fall 2022 is the first term in which we will see an increase in the in-person student body on campus. We want to ensure an enjoyable campus experience for the new and returning students, faculty and staff. Since we no longer have an indoor masking requirement for any campus, we continue to encourage and welcome masking.  

Masks and hand sanitizer will be made available upon entering campus, in addition to every classroom, lab and library. If you require a COVID-19 test kit, please inquire at the Information Desk at your respective campus.

To bolster student engagement, the University is planning Welcome Week campus activities. We want theFNUniv community to feel comfortable and safe while on campus. We ask that you continue to be conscious of others’ health and well-being. If you do not feel well or have tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home, self-manage and advise the FNUniv Crisis Response Team immediately.

The University will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate our safety measures as needed. 

Your consideration in maintaining a safe student and work environment is greatly appreciated.
