Arrivals 2020-2021

Welcome Students!

We thank you for choosing Memorial University for your studies. On this page (and subsequent pages), we hope to help guide you with information about the processes you will have to go through for a potential return to Newfoundland and Labrador.

All students (both domestic and international) MUST complete the Arrival Information Form AND participate in Memorial’s Self-Isolation Peer Support Program. The form is used to gather information needed to support students during the mandatory self-isolation period.

Update for students on winter 2021 arrivals

For the Winter 2021 semester, programs will proceed in a primarily remote teaching and learning environment. Students who are expected to be on campus would have received direct communication from their academic unit or campus.

If you have questions or concerns about the arrivals process, please contact with your questions.

Important Notice for Students travelling from NS, NB and PEI

Part of the arrivals process to Newfoundland and Labrador involves a minimum 14-day self-isolation period. Since July, travellers coming from one of the Atlantic Provinces (Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick) were exempt from the self-isolation requirement if they showed no signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

However, on Monday, November 23rd, it was announced that Newfoundland and Labrador will temporarily withdraw from the "Atlantic Bubble." This will be in effect until Wednesday, January 9th, 2021, subject to review.

This means that ALL students (new, returning, domestic, international) travelling from outside the province of Newfoundland and Labrador must self-isolate upon returning to the province.

These students must also complete the forms through this site to inform the institution of your travel so that we may support you in the mandatory self-isolation period.
