Where is the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and the Memphis Speech and Hearing Center (MSHC)?

The School is NOT located on main U of M campus. It is housed in the building referred to as the Memphis Speech and Hearing Center at 807 Jefferson Avenue, Memphis, TN 38105. All classes and some clinic are at the MSHC. There is a second location, MSHC East, where clinic is also held. MSHC East is located at: 4075 Park Avenue, Memphis, TN 38111.

When is orientation? What will happen at orientation?

Orientation will be held at MSHC's downtown location. The dates are included in the General Timeline. It's important to remember that these dates fall BEFORE classes start at the university, so you'll want to make sure to get here the week before classes begin. The day will be the time when incoming students meet current students and faculty as well as receive information regarding the program, class and clinic schedules and orientation meeting times. We will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the lobby of the Memphis Speech and Hearing Center and will provide breakfast and lunch. Meetings with clinic supervisors will be scheduled on Thursday and Friday. There is also a New Graduate Student Orientation at the University Center on the main campus. General questions about graduate school will be answered and lunch will be provided.

Will there be any social events during orientation?

Yes. There will be an informal event each evening of orientation to give you the opportunity to better get to know faculty as well as incoming and current students. One of the evening events will be a party at a faculty member's home. Significant others and children are invited.  Smaller events are planned for the other two evenings.  These events are not mandatory, but you are encouraged to participate to see that we enjoy having fun as well as working together.

Is there parking at MSHC?

Parking for our students is available for our students in four nearby parking lots (within five minutes walking distance) and a parking garage (directly beside MSHC). All lots are owned by UT Medical School. Information will be provided as to where to purchase these permits during the orientation meeting.

How do I get a student ID?

During orientation you will be taken to the main campus of the university where you will be issued a (free) student ID. This ID can be used to get into U of M sporting events (for free) and to make copies at the library.
