BU open houses and events

BU open houses and events

Throughout the year, we host a variety of events aimed at helping new (and potential) students get a sense of what it’s really like to be part of the Bishop’s community. We encourage you to join us for one (or more!) of these activities and discover why it is such a great time to be a student at BU. After all, there’s nothing quite like experiencing the power of Purple firsthand!

Looking for the best way to find out when we’ll be heading your way, or when you’ll be invited to visit us in Lennoxville for a special event? Bookmark this page, and check back often for news!

Open House

Saturday, March 21, 2020

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 our campus community and visitors to campus, we have cancelled our scheduled on campus Open House that was to occur on Saturday March 21st. We understand that visiting our campus plays an important role in the decision making process of your future university. Over the coming days we will be working on developing a “Virtual Open House” so that we can bring the campus to you.  Our plans will include a series of live and recorded videos, campus tours, information and chat sessions, and a contact list so that you can gather more information and get any outstanding questions answered. Also note that we have also suspended our campus tour program until the end of April at which point we will reassess. Virtual campus tours and live tour sessions will also be announced in the coming days.

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 thank you for your understanding in this matter and unique situation we are all facing.  For more information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and our guiding priorities, please visit www.ubishops.ca/coronavirus.

Should you have any specific concerns please contact us at: recruitment@ubishops.ca or 1-819-822-9600 ext. 2681 (Office hours are Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:00 pm EDT).

Please stay healthy and safe!
