UoGuelph increases services, supports in preparation for influx of larger first-year cohort

The University of Guelph is increasing its student services and supports in preparation for a larger-than-normal cohort of first-year students that is expected on campus this Fall. In addition to planning to expedite plans to increase student housing, CBC reports that UoGuelph’s off-campus living team is increasing its summer staff to help students search for housing. Other changes to accommodate the influx of students include expanding class sizes, adding new classes, adding health care and mental health staff, expanding orientation week programming, and expanding meal plan options for first year students. A release from UoGuelph said that its “focus remains on readiness to ensure an enriched student experience for all incoming students.”
