Main Office: 10am-2pm, Monday, Wednesday & Friday
Graduate Office: 10am-12pm, Tuesday & Thursday
Undergraduate Office: 12pm-2pm, Tuesday & Thursday

Before Returning to Campus:

Based on advice from public health officials, Western employees and graduate students must complete the "Return to Campus" questionnaire prior to each work shift of each visit to campus, provided at: In addition, Western's Health, Safety & well-being team has developed an eight-minute COVID-19 training video (accessed via OWL) called "Return to Campus Essentials" that all employees must view.

When You Arrive on Campus:

When you arrive to the building, please be sure to tap your Western ID card to both unlock the door but also to record your entry to the building. Even if someone else opens the door for you, be sure to tap your card for COVID-19 tracing.

Wear a non-medical mask/face covering. This is required when in the presence of others and in common and shared spaces on campus. Western is supplying all employees with three washable masks. Hand sanitizer has also been placed in shared common rooms as well as at elevators and building entrances.
