Visit Us

Whether you are exploring our school as a potential place to study, work or volunteer; attending an exhibit opening, or just seeking a comfortable setting where you can get wireless access between classes, we offer not only some cheerful indoor and outdoor settings, but are also known as some of the most collegial and accessible communities on campus. This page is intended to guide you as a campus novice, visitor or member of the general public.

We are a culturally diverse team, committed to supporting our local community and partners around the globe, and are well-equipped to meet the needs of the public, international visitors, prospective students and parents. You will quickly recognize the value that exceptional service and attention add to your campus experience.

Our faculty, staff and students always strive to be accessible. Please respect our posted office hours whenever possible, but you will find most individuals are willing to visit about your interests and provide insights into pertinent areas of our facilities and programs. If you don’t find your answer on our website, please stop at our administrative headquarters at the School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) Building, Room 233, or call us at 480-965-6215.
