Getting Around Campus – The Short Course for New Students

30 Jul

During this time of the year, there are a lot of new students at Durham Tech. The college has invested in some great new signs that help students find where they’re supposed to be, but it’s still a daunting process if you’re new to campus. Here are some tips.

1. First, take a look at this map before you come to campus and print it out–and have one copy with you in your backpack or book bag for your first week of school, right there alongside your class schedule. You’ll notice that the buildings are identified by number and name. The map also gives you the room numbers for each building.

2. If you need to go to the admissions and financial aid offices, or visit the college book store, head over to the Phail Wynn, Jr. Student Services building. You’ll hear it referred to as the “Phail Wynn” and “Wynn building” as well. That’s Building 10–which is the big 3 story building off of Lawson Street.

3. If you need to pay for something at the business office, go to the Nathaniel B. White building, which is Building 1. It’s the long, one-story building that parallels Lawson Street. The cashier’s office is located just inside the front doors to the building.

4. Need a parking permit or a student ID? Go to the security building which is Building 8, located next to the Phail-Wynn building. And, yes, you’ll need to display that permit when you park on campus.

5. If you want to find out where to go before making the trek to the main campus, or just need a phone number or email, check out the super handy “Where Do I Go?” quick reference page on the college web site.

Remember that Summer hours run through August 8, and that means Durham Tech offices will be open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursdays and from 8 a.m. – noon on Fridays.
