The School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS) will use this space to keep the graduate and postdoctoral community updated with the latest information related to COVID-19.

As the rapidly evolving situation continues, we recognize that you have many questions and concerns, and that you are undoubtedly dealing with a wide range of emotions.

Please know your academic success, and your health and well-being, are our top priorities during this uncertain, challenging time.

If you can work remotely, especially if a sense of routine and structure helps you to feel well, please feel free to do so; however, if the needs of your family and your community are your priority, focus your energy where you think it should be. The University is not going anywhere. We will get through this. We are in this together.

Access to Campus Buildings

Based on a directive from the provincial government, the University moved to an essential services model as of 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, continuing until the government announces a change. This means that only those identified as essential personnel will have access to University buildings.

Academic/Health and Well-Being Supports

We encourage you to visit the newly-created Digital Student Experience website where you will find tools and resources to help with the transition to online/remote learning. The site also provides digital/virtual academic, health and well-being, career development, and social connection supports. Questions can be directed to Student Support, Case Management at 519-661-2111 x89152 or sscm@uwo.ca.

The City of London, through the London Housing Stability Bank, offers interest free loans for rent and utilities to help domestic and international graduate students.
