The English Department has moved...back to LHH!

After some delays due to COVID-19, we are pleased to announce that the Lake Huron Hall renovation is now complete! We couldn't be happier with the end results and are excited for students and faculty alike to enjoy all the newly renovated space has to offer.

Our main English Department office has officially moved to 235 LHH. 

Looking for a professor? Check our Faculty Offices & Office Hours page for their contact information as well as their office hours for the W21 semester. Please note: during the W21 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.

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