The Mathematics and Science Study Centre operates a Drop-in Room located on UTS City Campus, in Building 4, level 3, room 331 (CB04.03.331). Academic staff members are available in the Drop-in Room at the scheduled timetable for one-to-one assistance. Students are advised to bring their mathematical notes or textbooks with them.
The Centre also runs workshops during session and in the final exam period for many first year mathematics and statistics subjects. These workshops are timed to assist students in their preparation for quizzes and the final exam.
Maths and Science Study Centre Drop-in room is open from the 3rd week of semester till (and including) the first week of formal final exams.
Students are welcome to use the Centre for private and group study. A timetable with the names of tutors and their areas of expertise is available at the beginning of each session. This timetable changes as we become aware of student needs.
