Fanshawe is finally returning to the typical college experience after a long two years.

Fanshawe College announced on Twitter that students can expect a normal Fall semester after two years of empty halls and Zoom calls. Students received an email on July 18 outlining that classes will be delivered mainly in person, with some lectures and materials online.

“We’re excited to welcome our students back and we will be delivering programming equivalent to Fall 2019’s on-campus delivery and ensuring we continue with virtual services for students who choose to receive their student services virtually,” said Janice Lamoureux, Fanshawe’s Dean of Students. “We will also be opening up all of our student services offices to provide in-person services.

In addition to classes and student services, all restaurants on campus will once again be operating. Currently, Pizza Pizza and Tim Horton’s, both located in D Building, are operating through the summer months.

On the main campus (including Z building), Fanshawe is expecting approximately 7,912 students. The number of students attending on-campus, across all campuses, is up eight per cent compared to 2019. Here’s the breakdown, including both online and on-campus delivery for Fall 2022:

  • London Main Campus (including Z): 7912
  • London Main Campus (excluding Z): 7309
  • Z Building: 602
  • Y Building: 572
  • Downtown Campus: 1018
  • London South Campus: 540
  • Woodstock Campus: 261
Although campus life will be back to normal, online classes are still an option for select programs.

“We’re continuing to offer full-time and part-time fully online programs and courses. That would be for our students who have actually applied and selected full-time online delivery as their method of completing studies and that is one of our growing areas for Fanshawe College.”

But, if anyone is wanting to continue online, that is only an option if your specific program was originally delivered fully online pre-COVID.

“For students who were in a program and started their program as temporarily blended, those students will return to on-campus delivery with some of the courses offered fully online, such as theory or general education, but the majority of their coursework will be on-campus.”

As of July 19, Fanshawe is starting to release timetables to students for the fall. Domestic students who have paid their deposit and international students who have paid full fees can now access their schedule on WebAdvisor. Orientation Day is on Sept. 6 for new students.
