Summer 2021 course registration opens Tuesday, February 16, 2021. All Brescia summer courses will be offered virtually. Labs and clinical courses related to Brescia’s Foods and Nutrition program may be offered in-person, with limited enrolment and physical distancing in place. Students are asked to check the timetable for further details.
Pending public health guidelines, Brescia plans to offer approximately 80% in-person learning and 20% virtual learning. This not only provides our campus with a greater degree of safety, but also ensures maximum flexibility and choice for our students. Additionally, it ensures that our students and faculty will not have to encounter dramatic shifts in course delivery, and can feel confident and prepared for the course path selected.
To see what is open and when at Western, please visit their COVID-19 website.
Brescia recognizes this is an especially challenging time for our students, some of whom are facing significant financial challenges as a direct result of COVID-19. We are working to identify and respond to students with immediate short-term financial concerns.

As fall plans are developed, the health and safety of Clare Hall residents and our campus community continue to guide our decisions.

Students will be required to present proof prior to moving into Clare Hall (late August or September 2021). More details will be shared in the upcoming weeks.
Exemptions will be granted to students who for medical or other reasons, cannot be vaccinated in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code.
Residence students can receive any Health Canada approved vaccine. A World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine for international students will also be accepted. Vaccination documentation will be required for all students.
Students who cannot access their first COVID-19 vaccine before arriving on campus will have 14 days following their move-in date to get vaccinated on or off campus. Students who have not been vaccinated with a first dose within two weeks following their move-in date, or who have not been granted accommodation to this requirement, will not be permitted to remain living in residence.
