Your experience will be different, for sure, due to COVID-19. But what won’t be different is a caring campus community coming together — in person or virtually — to learn and work together.

We’re working to make it as easy as possible for you to get the information and support you need so you can reach your goals and stay healthy.

Whether you’re a student, faculty or staff member or a member of the public, this website will help you learn more about the year ahead.

Important updates

Mount Royal University will continue delivering most classes online during the Winter 2021 semester, similar to the Fall 2020 semester. On-campus and off-campus exceptions will be considered for those courses requiring in-person learning components.

Over the next month, faculty members will decide on courses with in-person learning exceptions. A list of these will be posted online in the first week of November so that you can prepare. If a course is not listed on the Winter 2021 in-person courses list, students are not required to engage in in-person learning.

While teaching will primarily remain online, we are starting to explore ideas around gradually expanding access to campus so we can connect with one another safely based on the health guidelines. More information will be provided as these opportunities are available.

Of course, any decisions regarding the Winter 2021 semester or expanding access to campus will need to consider the evolving guidance from the health authorities and the provincial government.

Right now, the health and safety of our campus community must come first, but please know we miss you. Hopefully with these decisions we can welcome everyone back to campus as soon as possible.
