We are happy to announce that we re-opening our campus offices on June 1.  For your continued welfare and protection, however, we will monitor access to our buildings and limit the number of people in our offices by keeping our exterior doors locked during the month of June.  Nonetheless, we are eager to visit with you and request that you contact us to schedule a virtual or face-to-face meeting by calling 214-768-4273 or e-mailing mls@smu.edu or smudls@smu.edu.   If you forget to pre-schedule, no worries; these contact numbers will be posted on our exterior doors as well.  … And as always, feel free to call or e-mail us anytime during our regular business hours; we are here to help!   

Simmons-specific information and FAQ's are on our COVID-19 page.  For additional information on SMU’s response to COVID-19, please visit SMU’s blog https://blog.smu.edu/coronavirus-covid-19/.
