The best way to get to know the iSchool is to visit us. Sit in on a class, talk with the faculty and staff, join us for one of our speaker's series, meet the students and visit the campus!

The College of Information Studies is located in the Hornbake Building South (classroom wing). This is the wing closest to Campus Drive and contains, in addition to the College, the Career Center and the Letters and Sciences department. The north wing contains the University's Non-Print Collection and the Maryland Room. If you accidentally find yourself in the north wing, you will need to backtrack out to the courtyard to get to the south wing. The wings are not connected on the inside.

The Dean's Office and the administrative staff are located on the fourth floor, suite 4105. The Student Services Office is also located on the fourth floor in suite 4110. The College research center, research labs, student lab and study space are located on the second floor. iSchool faculty offices are located on both the second and fourth floors, as are offices of the technology staff. Classrooms are generally located on the ground, second and fourth floors of Hornbake.
