At times engineering can be VERY overwhelming and a lot of work. DON’T PANIC! There are many resources that can be used to help students through these difficult times.
Devon Academic Resource Centre (DARC)
The Devon Academic Resource Centre, located on the 3rd floor of the EEEL Building in room EEEL 323. It is a great resource for students. There are work tables for students to work either individually or in a group and white boards and chalk boards for student use. Currently, Learning Assistants are located in SB 140B and SB 140C. If a student needs help with a question or a concept they can find help in this room. DARC also contains copies of old exams for student use and reference books for laboratory write-ups. All of DARC's exams are available on the Internet and can be accessed by any engineering student through D2L or the DARC website! To contact DARC, call (403) 220-5546.

Engineering Student Centre (ESC)
Many of you will find yourselves in need of information, assistance, or counseling at some time during your university days. The ESC can give you general advice, as well as specific information and assistance for admission and registration, adding, dropping, and withdrawing from courses, academic appeals, program selection, and much more.
D2L is an extremely useful resource for students to use and take advantage of. Many professors use D2L to post important announcements and grades for students. Every student in the university has access to a D2L account and the main login site is found at www.d2l.ucalgary.ca.
