3 College Freshman

Weather: Not Bad – usually pretty average weather. nothing to complain about

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The campus is beautiful for the summer months, and barely anyone is in London other than summer school students and faculty. The population exponentially increases when it's nice out, where you notice the amounts of people partying outdoors. However, it snows a lot and classes never get cancelled. Luckily, there is a inter-campus bus system, so if you plan properly you won't have to walk much.

3 College Junior

Weather: From November to the end of February there is usually snow on the ground, but each year is different as to how much we get. However, when the weather is nice, everyone hangs out outside and the campus is gorgeous.

3 College Student

Weather: Spring, summer, fall, winter. Rainy, hot and muggy, crisp and clear, snowy, in that order, which is a normal distribution for southwestern Ontario. Classes as a whole are rarely cancelled, but some professors commute, so they may cancel their own classes in the case of blizzards and snowstorms. The public transportation runs even in awful weather and plows with salt run early in the morning before most classes.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Snow makes for less room on the buses and the sidewalks around campus are often slippery or not entirely plowed.

For the most part, London weather is of extremes. In the summer, it's hot and humid. In the winter—and most of the school year—it's snowing all the time. However, students learn to deal with the weather and embrace everything that Mother Nature can throw at them. Fall is beautiful on campus, and the weather is usually of a pleasant, crisp temperature. The first snowfall is usually in October, and it's common for snow to be on the ground until March. Most of your school year will involve trekking through snow, but, thankfully, tunnel systems on campus connect some of the buildings.

London is located in a snow belt, so come prepared for the snow. Despite attempts to salt the pathways on campus, expect to slip at numerous points during the year. Bar nights will often involve standing out in the cold for hours in line, and this is a student norm. Buses are steadfast forms of transportation in all types of weather, and it is rare for the bus to be cancelled. The winters will often have temperatures as low as -5°F, with summer highs around 90°F. London is comprised of extreme weather conditions, and the transition between fall and winter is brief in length.
