E-mail sent to the personal accounts of ISSS staff may not be answered promptly if that staff member is away from the office for an extended period.  Therefore, you are encouraged to use the main e-mail account for correspondence.


Appointments may be made by telephone or in person. It is recommended that you discuss your needs with the office secretary first,as you may find that an appointment is not necessary for many functions. If an appointment with the director or the international student advisor is deemed necessary, one can usually be scheduled within three business days, except during vacation periods.
