    Spring Term Update

    Lambton College will extend its Student Access Plan into the upcoming Spring Term.

    While conversations about what college might look like for September 2021 have begun, the decision to continue in a hybrid format for Spring is certain and is based largely on the success of the Fall and Winter terms and the safety of the college community.

    This approach will see the continuation of theory-based courses offered online, labs completed face-to-face, and student services provided in both remote and in-person formats, all while adhering to protocols for physical distancing and public health guidelines.

    As our students continue to learn both remotely and partially remotely, we want to make it very clear that our College is committed to doing everything we can to ensure our students are both safe and successful – whether they’re studying on campus or online.

    Lambton remains committed to providing the best educational experience possible for our students and we are confident that our Student Access Plan will give students an opportunity to successfully achieve their program learning outcomes. Refer to the Keeping Lambton Safe & Open document for accessing the college during all COVID-19 phases.

  • Hybrid Learning


    Lambton is implementing a blended Hybrid Learning Approach for the Winter 2021 Term.

    Based on the success of our Fall Term, a decision has been made to extend our Hybrid Academic Plan through the Winter Term. This blended approach will apply to both program delivery and student services. Delivery of theory will remain online, while most hands-on training will take place on campus, while adhering to all campus Health & Safety protocols. 

    Our College is committed to doing everything we can to ensure our students remain safe and continue to be successful in their studies - whether they're learning online or on campus.

    Winter Term Schedule

    The Winter Term will start on Monday, January 18, and will include a one-week break halfway through the term.

    Supports for Indigenous Students

    Our Indigenous Student Centre has created educational study hubs in Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, which will provide a safe, quiet space and access to technology for students in the community.

    Navigating COVID-19 on Campus

    Lambton College has released Employee and Student decision trees to assist in navigating a variety of COVID-19 related scenarios. These decision trees show you what to do in the event that you are exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms.

    Health & Safety

    health and safety

    “Be Safe, Feel Safe”

    We are ready with our “Be Safe, Feel Safe” protocols and have taken considerable steps to ensure our facilities adhere to strict health and safety guidelines by working with Lambton Public Health and provincial authorities. Our rigorous health and safety protocols, increased cleaning, new hand sanitizing stations and social distancing guidelines will ensure the safety of everyone who will be on campus and our philosophy of caring will help us to be accountable for the safety of not only ourselves, but others, at all times.

    Varsity Sports

    The Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) and its members announced the decision to suspend varsity sports and recreation activities planned for the 2020 fall semester at the OCAA’s 27-member schools. The decision was made in response to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.

    For the 2021 winter term, the sports of basketball, volleyball, badminton, curling, and indoor soccer are currently planned to take place. The OCAA will continue to monitor the evolving situation on an ongoing basis and will make decisions based on public health and safety in regards to the well-being of our student-athletes and membership as a whole.

    For more information surrounding the OCAA’s decision visit the OCAA website.

    Fitness Centre
    The framework for safely re-opening facilities, such as the Athletics & Fitness Complex, will also remain flexible, thus allowing for any changes in regional, provincial, and federal health regulations. Our plan now is to follow a phased-in approach to re-opening the AFC, and Phase One is where we are currently and is the most restrictive. At this time, access to the AFC will be restricted to just academic programming. Additionally, there will be no external guest usage of the gym space, which includes the main gymnasium, old gymnasium, and fitness studios. We hope to welcome students, staff, faculty and partners back as soon as possible as we work toward Phase Two, and our plan continues to evolve.
