Hours of Operation

Main Office: 8:30am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday
Writing Centre: 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., Monday – Sunday (reduced hours on weekends)

NOTE: No tests or exams will be given a finish time past 10:00pm. Extended time accommodations may therefore be scheduled with an earlier start time to that of the class. If this creates a conflict for the student, it is their responsibility to speak to the Instructor to discuss an alternate day/time. The Instructor is required to contact SES staff to discuss any alteration to a student’s reservation.

  • Only Proctors on duty are permitted to enter the Exam Centre and interact with students, all others must report to SES Staff.
  • Only Instructors, or their designate (TA/administrative staff), with a scheduled exam, or who are dropping off or picking up exams, are permitted to enter the Exam Centre – and must report to SES staff;
  • All other visitors are asked to schedule an appointment ahead of time, and are required to report to SES staff upon arrival.
