Response during the COVID-19 pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the direction given by Memorial University’s Emergency Operations Centre, staff members are working from home effective March 19 and have limited access to systems. Response to emails and phone calls may be delayed as we prioritize essential operations and matters that require immediate attention.

If you are a current student and you have questions, live chat is available from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily. When live chat is offline, students can visit the FAQ for answers to common questions or check out the contact information page for phone numbers or email addresses for key departments. Students can also email with their questions.

Memorial University is committed to employee health, and the health of the general public. Your patience and support is appreciated during this unprecedented time.
