Winter 2021 Dates

The University of Alberta recognizes that this year has been full of challenges and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the university will officially resume regular (and largely remote) operations on January 4, the start date for the Winter 2021 term has changed in order to continue to adapt and support the university community. Courses will resume on January 11, 2021. Dates for exams, add/drop, and end of term have also changed. See Winter 2021 Dates for more information. 

Course Delivery and Campus Access

The majority of courses normally delivered on-campus are being delivered remotely for Winter 2021 and the majority of university buildings, including the Education Complex, remain closed with restricted access. A small number of select buildings repain open on campus. See Campus Building Hours for more information.
