Welcome to the School of Social Work at Carleton University

Carleton’s return to campus began on August 23, 2021 in anticipation of the hybrid learning model being used for the Fall 2021 term. This return to campus will be gradual and able to evolve to meet recommendations from Ottawa Public Health, Ontario Public Health and Health Canada guidelines. The School of Social Work main office on the 5th floor of Dunton Tower is open. Hours of operation are 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday. The office will be closed daily from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. To help ensure safe social distancing, School of Social Work administrative staff will be adopting a hybrid work schedule for the fall, being present in the office some days and working remotely on others.

Students are encouraged to continue accessing services remotely whenever possible.  It is preferred that you book an appointment for services with administrative staff membersPlease visit the Carleton University COVID-19 website for up-to-date information on how to access campus.
