Large gatherings in student neighbourhoods continue to cause issues in Guelph, London

September 29, 2021
Large unsanctioned gatherings continue to be an issue in university neighbourhoods. In Guelph, extra officers were deployed to address a large street party on Chancellor’s Way. UoGuelph interim vice-provost of student affairs Irene Thompson expressed disappointment in the students who attended the gatherings, calling the choice to gather and the behaviours seen at the gathering “upsetting.” Police officers and emergency personnel responded to a wild nighttime gathering of around 2,000 people near Western on Saturday during a “Fake Homecoming” celebration. 30 people were reportedly taken to hospital, and one person was arrested for assaulting a police officer.
