The TWU Health & Safety Taskforce will be updating the information below throughout the summer as federal, provincial, and Post-Secondary Guidelines are reviewed and we are provided more details ahead of the 2021 Fall Semester.

Quarantine Planning

TWU is committed to providing quarantine accommodations for Fall 2021 international students who will be campus residents. Students should plan on arriving prior to the normal move-in date and expect a fee for both Housing and a Quarantine meal plan. Details have yet to be announced by the Canadian government, but once they have been determined we will provide detailed information on our web pages (likely early July).

Current regulations require all individuals entering Canada are required to self-isolate for 14 days per Federal Travel Requirements.

Below are details, including links to several resources for students, and instructions on how to navigate this process.  

Students choosing to complete their quarantine off-campus must still register their quarantine plan with TWU, by mandate of the B.C. Ministry of Education. If this applies to you, please complete the following form to receive an official enrolment confirmation letter and register your quarantine plan with TWU.
