The health and wellbeing of students and staff remains the priority of Camosun College.

Update on student services at Camosun
From Heather Cummings, VP Student Experience
The last few weeks have been busy for everyone as the fall semester gets underway. Whether your courses are entirely remote or a mixed blend, all of our student support services are available. We have a number of exciting updates that we wanted to share.
Library: The Lansdowne Campus Library is open for on-campus service by appointment only. If you need to use the computer lab, borrow materials or connect with one of our Librarians, visit camosun.ca/library for more information.
Study Spaces: Students looking for somewhere to study in between attending courses approved to be delivered on campus can now find space in most college buildings.
Fitness Centre: The Lansdowne Campus Fitness Centre will be open from 9am to 5pm starting the week of Oct. 13 by appointment only. Book an appointment
Chargers Athletics: Our Chargers are back! The Camosun Chargers have commenced in person practices and training as of Sept. 21. Updates and introductions of the 2020/21 crew
Form an online club: The Camosun College Student Society (CCSS) still provides support for student groups or clubs through their Clubs Program. All you need is an idea for a club, five students willing to join, and a rough idea of a budget. Have questions, or an idea for a club or student group? Get in touch with the CCSS.
Student Elections! There are a number of college committees that seek student involvement and representatives – these include the Educational Council, Board of Governors, and the Student Services Fee Advisory Committee (SSFAC). The deadline to submit your nomination is Oct. 7 and Oct. 14 (SSFAC only). More information
We want our students to succeed and thrive. All of our student services remain available. If you are looking to meet with an academic advisor or would like to speak with one of our personal counsellors, support is available via email, phone or video conferencing.
Best of luck with the remainder of your semester.
COVID-19 Safety Training & Screening for students
It is important to Camosun College that all students, staff and faculty stay health and safe during this challenging time. Maintaining a safe learning environment and reducing the spread of COVID-19 is both an individual and a shared responsibility.
All students who are enrolled in a course with any on-campus or face-to-face component must complete the COVID-19 Safety Training and Initial Symptoms Self-Assessment before attending campus. There are knowledge testing questions throughout the training to support learning. Once you complete the training and final declaration form, you will receive a certificate by email to save for your records.
