Academics in Residence

Academics in Residence (AIR)

AIR offers a variety of free services, which are listed below.

Math and Writing Support

Math and Writing Support, offered through the Student Success Centre, is back. Both are on Wednesdays from 6 – 9 PM in the Aurora Hall multi-purpose room (you don’t need a key – you can enter via the quad on the DC side of the building).

Both services are open to all residents. The Writing Support Specialist can help with any university level writing issue. The Math Support Specialist can help with any foundational mathematics issue, as well as statistics, introductory calculus, linear algebra and discrete mathematics.

 Please note that this is not a class or presentation. The Specialists will work with you on your particular questions or issues. No appointment is necessary, and you can stay for as long as you want!

Funding for Math Support is provided via Student Union Quality Money.
