How to Find Us

The Biology Department is located in the Bioscience building (pictured here), between the Physics/Chemistry Building and the Leeolou Alumni Center, on East Campus. By car, the closest entrance in on Reservoir Street. If you are on foot, you will see Bioscience at the top of the hill when you walk up from UREC.

Prospective Students

If you are a prospective student, and you would like to meet with a faculty member, we would be happy to talk with you. Please, if you can, give at least 48 hours notice when sheduling your visit, so that we can find someone available to meet with you. If you would like to talk to a professor with a particular expertise or interest, browse our "People" page to see who might be a good fit for you. It is wise to contact more than one person, in case one of them is out of town, for example. For the best chance of finding someone available, it's a good idea to schedule your visit on a week day and while school is in session.
