With the strike continuing at UNB Saint John, students can be sure that the rest of the University’s operations are business as usual.
Student services such as counselling, financial aid and others are still operating in Oland Hall.
“Everything for us is business as usual,” says Kevin Bonner, director of Student Services at UNB Saint John.
“We haven’t reduced our hours and we are looking forward to seeing students.”
If students have assignments that they are working on or need some help with, Bonner recommends booking some time with one of the help centers.
“The math and science help centre and the writing centre are open, so if students know they have assignments and need some help, right now is a great time to use these resources.”
Bonner adds, “You also have our career counsellor and maybe a meeting with them is something you’ve been putting off because of a hectic class and work scheduling so you have that opportunity.”
In addition, the financial aid and awards office is open for students, along with the many other student services available on campus.
As for the cafeteria, service hours have been reduced to account for the decreased traffic on campus, however students and staff will still be able to get what they need and hours will be monitored and adjusted according to needs.
Hours for the Baird Dining Hall have been shortened to weekend hours, which are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Tim Horton’s is open from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
The Commons Café will remain closed for now
The gym is open as well and students are encouraged to make use of the facilities during the strike period.
