IMPORTANT MESSAGE With the World Health Organization’s classification of the COVID-19 as a worldwide pandemic, the Canadian and Quebec governments have made recent announcements that restrict activities on university campuses, including Bishop’s. Due to these announcements, and for the health and safety of both our campus community and visitors to campus, we have pro-actively suspended our in-person campus tour program until May 1, 2021, at which point we will reassess. We will be working on a series of virtual campus tours and live tour sessions which will be announced soon. Please note that Bishop’s University does not penalize students through the admissions process who are unable to demonstrate interest or come to on or off campus events. We understand that visiting our campus plays an important role in the decision making process of your future university and we thank you for your understanding in this matter and unique situation we are all facing.
