The CS Advisors offer email as well as virtual and in-person office hours. For general inquiries, please go to our FAQ or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a more complicated case that requires a conversation, then please meet with us during our office hours.
Daily Office Hours
Office hours are from 2:00 PM-3:30 PM every weekday, in person and online. Additional office hours are offered from 9:30 AM-11:00 AM in the first weeks of classes only.
If you aren't a UW student or you are an alumni, then please leave your email in the ticket system under "Others" so that we may contact you.
