Sociology Map

Our students enjoy a collegial environment with easy access to staff, faculty members, and facilities all conveniently on the 5th floor of the Social Science Centre.

Offices: Use the listings in our People section to locate anyone you need to meet. We do not have a reception or main office, but any staff member can direct you.

Classrooms: Our seminar rooms (SSC 5230, 5235, 5406, 5427, 5428) are used by Sociology for classes, tutorials, meetings, and research talks. Sociology members may create a meeting in Outlook Calendar to book these rooms.

Social Science conference room: SSC 5220 is used for Social Science meetings, guest speakers, and graduate classes. It can be booked through a meeting request in Outlook Calendar. Most of Sociology's guest speaker events are in SSC 5220. Check the Sociology map above for directions, or ask anyone up here - we're friendly.

Lounge: In SSC 5240, faculty, staff and graduate students sup and socialize in convenient kitchen, dining, and sitting areas. The lounge is used only for Sociology department socials and is not open for booking for outside events.

Research Area: Sociology's researchers and Ph.D. graduate students use SSC 5225 for their office space. There are three desktop computers provided as a mini computer lab facility for their convenience. These provide access to the current statistical, modeling, word processing and graphic software. This room is conveniently located, but still quiet (except for the electric hum of exceptional minds at work). 

Video Collection: Instructors and TAs can borrow educational videos from our collection to show to their classes. Instructors can login to Sociology Intranet to view the collection and sign out the video from Luan Chau.

Workroom/Mailroom: In SSC 5306 staff, instructors and graduate students retrieve their mail, printouts, photocopy, scan, and staple.

Assignment Dropbox: Outside SSC 5307 on the hallway wall is a wooden box labelled "Sociology DROP BOX." Undergraduate students may be instructed by their professor or TA to drop their completed assignments here. Assignments are date stamped when the box is emptied each day.
