Liberal Arts & Sciences Final Examination Schedule - Fall 2014 [Updated: 2014-10-30]


From November 26 until Friday, December 12, OCAD U is introducing 24 hour access to 100 McCaul (including the Sharp Centre for Design). Please note the following:

  • Access is for current OCAD University students only (remember to bring your OCAD U ID).
  • Access is to areas that are normally open during extended hours and do not require supervision by staff or a technician. This means there is no change to the hours of Shops and Studios (please consult the web for the up-to-date hours).
  • You may experience some interruptions in IT services as overnight maintenance is performed. Some desktop computers are set to automatically power down and/or clear drives so it is recommended that  those computers are not used to avoid losing work.
  • Security will be circulating the building. Please report any safety concerns to the front desk.

This is a trial period. Questions and concerns will be responded to as they arise and usage will be monitored in order to determine access hours for the end of next semester. Your feedback is welcome!

For more information please check your student email.


Graduates of 2012 – We want to hear from you!

Two years after graduation, Ontario university graduates are contacted by email and letter mail to complete a short survey about their employment and education experiences.   

Watch for your invitation starting in November!

This survey is your opportunity to tell us about your employment and education experiences since graduation.  Your responses are important because they will provide current and future students with information about employment prospects of recent graduates like you.

The survey is being conducted by CCI Research Inc. on behalf of OCAD University and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU).  

We look forward to hearing from you!
