The return of international students to campus has led institutions to offer various accommodations for those needing to quarantine prior to the start of school. Three institutions in British Columbia have different approaches to supporting students coming from abroad: University of Victoria and Camosun College students will be provided with information about hotels, along with check-ins from staff and a hamper full of food and other essentials for the two-week quarantine. Vancouver Island University is making 20 residence spaces available for those who need to quarantine and will provide meals daily. “Our No. 1 priority is supporting our students and keeping our community safe and we have a robust plan in place that follows the most current guidelines,” said Ian Johnsrude, VIU’s manager of student housing.
