T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Students Center

The construction of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Student Center (commonly called the Math Center) was completed in collaboration with a renovation of the LeRoy E. Cowles Building that started in April 2000 and was completed in December 2001 and was made possible through a generous donation from the George S. and Dolores DorĂ© Eccles Foundation. The Math Center is a sort of math haven for undergraduate students and their studies. Students can receive free tutoring for select math department courses, have access to a computer lab, and study in one of our group study rooms or independently at one of the individual study desks.

The center was named after T. Benny Rushing, who was a professor of mathematics at the U for nearly 30 years. In his tenure, he served as chair of the Department of Mathematics twice and led the College of Science as Dean from 1993-1997. A significant part of his effort in these roles was toward making the math center's existence a possibility. 

The math center can be found in the basement of LeRoy Cowles Building (LCB) and serves as a connection to the John A. Widtsoe Building (JWB).

If you have any questions or comments regarding the Math Center, please contact: Aryn DeJulis

Math Center Hours:

Monday - Thursday 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Friday 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

For Fall semester 2017, The Math Center will be closed:
Labor Day: September 4th
Fall Break: October 8th - 15th
Thanksgiving break: November 23rd - 24th 

The Department of Mathematics offers free drop-in tutoring within the Math Center for the following math classes:

  • Math 980
  • All 1000 and 2000 level department courses
  • Math 3070-3080 (Statistics), Math 3140-3150 (PDEs), and Math 3160 (Complex Variables)
  • Math 3210-3220 (Foundations of Analysis - tutoring times for these courses are at the bottom of the schedule)

All of our tutors can help students with algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. For other subjects, please check the schedule below to see when someone who can help you will be in. 

If you are needing assistance with a class other than those listed above, test prep, or you are not a University of Utah student, please fill out the Private Tutor List Request Form and we will send you a list of private math tutors.
