We've moved!

Over the last few days, the College of Education has been involved in moving to its new home at Central Hower.  By the first day of classes on Aug. 25, all offices and personnel will be located on the third floor of Central Hower. 

The Office of Student Services, which includes Preadmission Advising, Licensure, and Student Teaching, is open for business in Central Hower 303.  Please contact us at (330) 972-7750 for current advising hours.

Students and others entering Central Hower for College of Education business should use Door 1, which faces Buchtel Avenue.  Because Central Hower is an active high school, there will be a security guard at the desk inside the door.  Please have your UA identification available at all times when in the building.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new home next week!
