|Starting Fall 2011, the Slavic Department has relocated for 3 years while Cabell Hall undergoes refurbishment. Faculty are in the small building between Halsey Hall and Maury Hall. (On university maps, the building is variously labeled Halsey Annex C, Slavic Annex, or Religious Studies Annex.) Staff and all mailboxes are next door in the basement of Halsey. TA's can be found in both spaces.|
