Check the bottom of your Meridian phone to confirm the code (e.g. M2008) and select the correct user guide.

Instructors are each allocated a mailbox in the School at 3661 Peel. Mail from students will be received by the School's General Office and put in your mailbox.


Sessional Lecturer offices

There are two office locations for the School’s Sessional Lecturers:

  • In the School at 3661 Peel, the Sessional Lecturer office is Room 207. Phone: 398-3365.
  • Room B169 in the Education Bldg is assigned to the School for use by both sessional lecturers and faculty. You can leave materials there, or just use it as a coatroom. If you are using a School loaner laptop for teaching purposes, you can also leave it in this office.

You will be given keys to both these offices by the School's General Office at the beginning of the term in which you teach. A deposit will be required for the Medeco key for Room 207 at 3661 Peel. The deposit will be returned to you at the end of your teaching term when you return the key.



Assignment collection

Normally, assignments from students should be received in class by the instructor. However, for larger classes (over 45), arrangements can be made with the School's General Office to accept assignments during a specified time frame and hold them for the instructor to pick up. Each instructor should return papers, memos, etc. to the students in their class in order to preserve the confidentiality of work.


Copy cards (uPrint)

Sessional lecturers are assigned a uPrint resource account and accompanying proximity card. This card will be associated with your teaching.

Faculty members use their McGill ID card to copy and print.
