Urgent Update for ISC Regarding COVID-19

We know that this is a trying time for students, and we hope that you take comfort in knowing that ISC staff are always here to support you in every way possible.

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, Western is returning to a modified Phase 3 approach across campus, and the ISC’s hours and operations are responding to Ministry guidelines.  To ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, ISC will continue offering virtual programming; and make available key services and resources onsite at WSS 2100. Here are some details on our services and physical space operations.

Hours/Access: As of Monday September 21, 2020, ISC Center will be open and staff will be available in-person by appointment Mondays to Fridays from 11am - 4pm. Please email us at is.staff@uwo.ca or call us at 519-661-4095 to book an appointment, ask any questions about our services.

If you come to campus, PLEASE fill out the DAILY Return to Campus Questionnaire, and review the information on the health and safety website: https://www.uwo.ca/coronavirus/health-safety.html

The ISC door will remain locked and several doorbells have been placed near the entrance to notify ISC staff upon students’ arrival. Upon entering the building, students and staff are required to wear a mask, sign in/out, and use hand sanitizer provided at the entrance/exit of the building.

At this time, students will not have after-hours access; we recognize that after-hours access is important to our students, and we will be re-evaluating student needs against health and safety protocols on an ongoing basis. 

Space: Students will have access to ISC computer lab and print/fax/scan/telephone.

Support: ISC staff are available to meet with students by telephone, Zoom, or in-person to support academic, personal and cultural needs. Our staff telephone extensions are automatically forwarded to cell phones when staff are working from home. Please visit our staff profiles to find direct contact information for each of our staff members.

Lastly, ISC wants to emphasize that our health to  and wellbeing is a shared responsibility. We are interconnected. Please take care of yourself, each other, and our communities by making good choices; if we follow the recommendations, we will get through this together.
