Campus and Community

While the City of St. John’s remains under in a state of emergency, all Memorial University campuses in St. John’s will remain closed.

Dr. Noreen Golfman, provost and vice-president (academic), encourages all faculty/instructors who are teaching winter 2020 courses to extend academic leniency and flexibility to Memorial University students impacted by the current state of emergency and power outages.

This includes, but is not limited to, deadlines for submission of assignments, papers, etc., as well as attendance in classes and laboratories over the next couple of days. Students who have concerns related to their courses should reach out to their individual instructors.

All members of the university community are encouraged to follow the guidelines issued by the City of St. John’s related to the state of emergency.
