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

Representing all undergraduate students in FCS, CSS promotes all student interests at a university level and works towards promoting a welcoming environment.

Working towards an inclusive environment, CSGS promotes activities that help advance the interest of graduate students and present a unified voice for its membership within FCS.

Supporting and celebrating female students pursuing a degree within technology, WiTS strives to promote equality within STEM organizations inside and outside of the university.

We have a Learning Centre!

Available to all FCS students, the Learning Centre is a place to gather with peers. Teaching Assistants on staff can help with concepts taught in the core classes, and will try to help with the non-core courses.

The Centre is located in room 233 (on the second floor) of the Goldberg Computer Science Building and is staffed seven days a week by senior undergraduate and graduate students who are knowledgeable and eager to help. If you're stuck, go in and put your name on the list.
