Classrooms, teaching labs and study rooms closing on all campuses
Effective tomorrow, Monday, March 23, instruction at Memorial University officially resumes remotely.
A great deal of work has been going on behind the scenes in preparation for this huge transition for the entire Memorial community.
Rest assured that faculty, instructors and support staff continue to do everything they can to enable students to navigate the rest of the winter 2020 semester as smoothly as possible, despite the unprecedented circumstances.
In the continuing effort to promote social distancing, classrooms, study and practice rooms, teaching labs and computer labs on all campuses will be closed and locked effective Monday morning, March 23, with some exceptions.
