The Student Centre Goes Remote! 
In compliance with the latest advice from public health authorities, University of Ottawa staff are shifting to working from home. The Common Law Student Centre will continue to be your hub for information and advice about courses, registration, academic programs, equity and accommodations.  However, instead of booking in-person appointments and accepting walk-in inquiries, we will only be available by phone, email, and digital meeting tools (Zoom, Skype, MS Teams).  

If you would like to book a remote appointment, or you have questions, we are here for you! Please be sure to provide your preferred method of contact, including your preferred phone number if you would like a phone meeting.

We truly appreciate your patience as we adjust to this new reality. It may take longer than usual to respond to your inquiry, but we are doing our best to field urgent requests and questions as quickly as possible.
