Welcome to the International Student Centre (ISC) at the University of Windsor!
UPDATE: The University of Windsor has received approval to reopen to international students from outside of Canada.
UWindsor is now on the approved list of designated learning institutions (DLIs) that have reopened to asymptomatic international students from outside of Canada. International students who have or have been approved for a study permit can now travel to Canada for their studies (a non-discretionary or non-optional purpose).
In order to reopen to international students who aren’t currently in Canada, the Government of Ontario had to review UWindsor’s COVID-19 readiness plan to ensure it protects the health and safety of all students, staff and the community. UWindsor’s readiness plan includes safe and comfortable accommodation arrangements for the mandatory 14-day quarantine period for students and can be found by clicking on the button below.
Have Questions? An online webinar was hosted on Nov. 19 to help students learn more about our COVID-19 Readiness Plan and the steps International Students need to follow to safely travel to Canada. A recorded version of the online webinar is now available, along with a PDF version of the slide deck that was presented.
