The English Department has moved!

During the F20 semester, Lake Huron Hall renovation is being completed! As this project draws comes a close, the English Department offices will continue to be spread throughout the Allendale Campus, with our main office located in 4000 JHZ. 

Looking for a professor? Check our temporary office directory to see where their office is located. Please note: during the F20 semester, there will be no in-person office hours due to office sizes and social distancing requirements. Please contact your advisor to set up a virtual appointment. You can find faculty office hours listed as part of our temporary office directory as well. 

Need administrative assistance? Our staff can be found in 4000 JHZ or in B-3-226 MAK.

Our main phone number and department email remain the same: 616-331-3400, engdept@gvsu.edu.
