Dear Resident,

York University will not require any student impacted by the ongoing strike to leave residence. We have asked you, as a student, to let us know if you have extenuating circumstances that would prevent you from leaving by May 31. Please email us at undergradres@yorku.ca by May 23 if you have not already done so. We fully appreciate that students are in a variety of situations and we are absolutely committed to providing the supports you need. We will review each individual circumstance on a case-by-case basis, responding by May 26.

Please rest assured that if you require an extension in residence in order to complete fall/winter courses that have been suspended during the strike, we will accommodate you.

As outlined in a communication to students on May 11, we now expect to remediate and complete any courses from the Y and W terms through a variety of flexible options that will be determined when the labour dispute ends. This will include
opportunities to complete work without physically being on campus. Your professor will be in touch when the strike is over to provide information about remediation. If you are unable to attend in person, you will not be penalized and will be provided with alternative means of completing the course. Students should feel free to move on with summer plans.

We know there has been a great deal of uncertainty and it has been difficult navigating evolving conditions. We remain committed to ensuring that you receive support in determining next steps.
