Stay Safe, Feel Safe - Student Access Plan

  • Learn More About Our Fall Plan

    As we prepare to welcome our new and returning students back to class for September, 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 Fall Plan will give students an opportunity to successfully achieve their program learning outcomes. We've also developed a detailed Returning to Campus Protocol document (PDF).

  • 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.

    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.

    “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.

    Athletics & Student Administrative Council

    Varsity Sports

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

    For the 2021 winter terms, basketball, volleyball, badminton, curling, and indoor soccer are currently planned to run. 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. Visit the OCAA website for more information.

    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 Athletics & Fitness Complex, and Phase One (Fall 2020) will be the most restrictive. At this time, access to the Athletics & Fitness Complex will be restricted to just academic programming. Additionally, there will be no external guest usage of the gym space, which includes the main gym, old gym, 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.
    Intramural Sports

    In association with the phased re-opening of the Lambton College Athletics & Fitness Complex, Lambton College Athletics and Lambton College Student Administrative Council will be offering outdoor intramurals for Fall 2020, utilizing both the Lambton College Soccer Field and Lambton College Rec Pad.

Our Let’s Face It (LFI) team aims to build strength and resilience through student led initiatives by providing a student engagement platform focusing on student health and wellness.

    In September, LFI is implementing 21 days of programming created to raise awareness of the challenges that might arise during this transition, help students develop new friendships, and have an opportunity to connect with the College and community. The First 21 Days calendar of events will be available on the LFI Facebook page.
