The Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence Students Association aims to bring together everyone in the University of Toronto community involved with or interested in the study of mind. All full-time Faculty of Arts and Science undergraduates enrolled in a Cognitive Science program or enrolled in a course offered by the program are members of CASA.  However, anyone in the UofT community is welcome to participate in our events, including prospective students, part-time students, teaching assistants, graduate students, alumni, professors, and other interested individuals.

Our office in University College is the hub of CASA’s activities: we have a library that contains approximately 500 books on cognitive science and related topics, a computer, and a free wireless network. We also have a comfy couch and stereo system, so we encourage you to come by even just to hang out between classes.

Our office is F301 in UC. (It is accessible from UC’s quad – enter the door marked F on the western side of the quad, then go up the stairs to the third floor.)

If you have any questions you can always drop us a line.
