Outside the classroom

Sense of community

Dalhousie’s Faculty of Computer Science is a diverse culture of students and faculty from across Canada and around the world.

The strong sense of community begins with fellow students, staff, and professors and extends to the learning environment, the Goldberg Computer Science Building – a dynamic space that fosters learning and collaboration. The atrium, coffee shop, and open-concept workspaces provide natural gathering areas for staff and students to meet. Support for learning begins with the learning centre where tutors are available throughout the week and is complemented by both private study carrels and collaborative study spaces. 

You can get involved in one of our two undergraduate student societies, or our graduate student society. Attend any of their events or join their organizing and executive teams.

Our student societies

Computer Science Society (CSS)

CSS represents all undergraduate students in the faculty of computer science. They promote student interests in the faculty and at a university level. Their mission is to advocate for students, and to promote a welcoming and inclusive environment.

Computer Science Graduate Society (CSGS)

CSGS works towards an inclusive and welcoming environment at the Faculty by coordinating and promoting activities that help advance the interest of Computer Science graduate students, and presenting a unified voice for its membership in discussions both inside and outside Dalhousie University, particularly when such discussions may affect the Society’s membership.

Women in Technology Society (WiTS)

WiTS promotes gender and racial equality in the university and technology sector. Their efforts to promote equality include community-based initiatives such as introducing female students in high school to coding, as well as hosting educational networking events for university students. They also welcome members and exec who don’t identify as female to work on spreading the word of equality and equal opportunity through our Faculty and our community.
