Student life

As we ease back into in-person learning, our social lives will slowly start to return. Dalhousie's Faculty of Computer Science provides a strong sense of community that 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!

Where to Meet

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. 

Student Societies

The Faculty of Computer Science has three student societies. Interested in joining one? You can get involved in one of our two undergraduate student societies, or our graduate student society
