Academic Year Zoom Drop-In Hours / Fall 2020 (closed until 11/30 for Thanksgiving break)

If you have an immediate, time-sensitive concern that you are not able to schedule an appointment for, you may opt for a Drop-in with a Dean (hours listed below).  Drop-ins work on a first-come, first-served basis.  These are 20 minute (or less) slots.  If you need more time you should schedule a regular 30 minute appointment with a dean (see appointment links above).  If you cannot find a time that works for you there, please email [email protected] and we will find you a time.  

You will need a Zoom account to drop-in.

If you have a general question that does not require a dean, you can ask one of the knowledgeable office staff either by email ([email protected]) or by going to the drop-in hours (a staff member will be in the virtual lobby during the Virtual Drop-in hours).
