Arts and Science departs for Dunning

By Mark Kerr, Senior Communications Officer

A new academic year brings with it a new home for many students as well as the university’s largest faculty.

After several decades, the Faculty of Arts and Science office is moving from its current location in Mackintosh-Corry Hall to Dunning Hall.

“The move to Dunning Hall is exciting for us for many reasons, but most importantly for the ability to serve students better,” says Susan Mumm, Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science. “With both a better location and increased capacity, the new space will ensure that during peak times students will benefit from faster service and reduced queuing.”

With renovations of the space in Dunning Hall nearly complete, Arts and Science will set up shop between Aug. 18-22. Student Services will move early in the week, followed by Continuing and Distance Studies, and then finally the Dean’s Office near the end of the week.

“Combining the three internal units of the faculty office -- the Dean’s Office, Students Services and Continuing and Distance Studies -- into one space will also help us to serve student needs more efficiently,” Dr. Mumm says. “Overall, this is a strategic move that helps us become more student focused.”

Service may be intermittent next week during the move. The faculty expects service to return to normal the week of Aug. 25.

While phone numbers and email address will remain the same, the new office address is:
