Student life

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.
