After more than two years of disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to safely offer the vibrant on-campus experience Fanshawe is known for, including extensive in-person education, supports and activities.


Fanshawe’s COVID-19 vaccination policy has been suspended, meaning proof of vaccination is not required to be on campus. Fanshawe has also removed the requirements for masks to be worn on campus. Cafeterias, lunchrooms and dining areas are at regular occupancy. Classrooms and labs are in full use, with activity- or industry-specific restrictions in place where applicable. Some physical barriers remain in place in certain classrooms or service offices.


Please observe all posted rules and guidelines and continue to practice good hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette. Masking indoors is still strongly recommended and passive screening is encouraged. We also encourage all students and employees to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19, seasonal Influenza and other highly-contagious preventable diseases as soon as possible, when you are eligible. Stay safe and take care of one another!


*NOTE: Fanshawe’s plans may be subject to change based on changing public health requirements and the guidance of the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities. We will provide updates as necessary and when information becomes available. For the most up-to-date information about changes to policies and requirements, visit our News page.

Health and Safety Protocols

The following COVID-19 protocols remain in place at all campuses and locations:

  • Overnight cleaning and disinfection;
  • Ventilation will operate at 100 per cent fresh air;
  • Physical barriers in academic labs, at customer service points and between sinks in washrooms;
  • Passive screening signage on doors;
  • Rapid tests available for both employees and students;
  • Masks available for distribution - students can request masks at the student services hubs at any campus.

Visiting Campus

Students and employees are encouraged to mask indoors and stay up to date on recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Please stay home if you feel unwell or develop any symptoms of COVID-19. If you test positive for COVID-19, please follow the current public health guidelines. You can complete the Ontario self-assessment to learn more about the public health recommendations for self-isolation. Students who are unable to attend their classes should contact their professors. Staff who cannot attend work should contact their manager.

Fanshawe will continue to follow the advice and recommendations from our regional public health authorities. This may include the reintroduction of additional COVID-19 protocols during the academic year as they become necessary.
