Brandon University students enjoy an extended vacation.
The university announced Thursday that most winter term classes will begin on January 12.
The term was scheduled to start a week earlier, but the Brandon University Senate voted in favor of the delay to give students and faculty more time to prepare for classes online.
The campus will be closed from Christmas Eve until January 4.
Courses for students in education will begin on January 10 and New Student Orientation is scheduled for the following day.
Earlier this week, Brandon University announced that most classes would switch to remote learning through the end of January.
